US judge sentences prolific poacher to repeatedly watch Disney Bambi movie
MISSOURI – A judge in the US state of Missouri has sentenced a prolific deer poacher to repeat screenings of Bambi, the Walt Disney classic weepy about a fawn whose mother is killed by a hunter.
David Berry Jr will be forced to watch the animated movie at least once a month during his year-long jail term. This is the law enforcement officials “largest-ever poaching investigations”.
Berry and two family members were arrested on charges of killing hundreds of deer over three years, according to the Missouri Conservation Authority, which announced the sentence in a December 13 statement.
The prosecutor Don Trotter of Lawrence Count, Missouri said “The deer were trophy bucks taken illegally, mostly at night, for their heads, leaving the bodies of the deer to waste”.
Berry had already seen his hunting privileges revoked for past wildlife infractions and was on probation.
Judge Robert George sent Berry to jail for one year and ordered the film viewings to be conducted by the sheriff of the Lawrence County Jail.
Fourteen people have been ensnared in a multi-year investigation of illegal hunting spanning Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Canada.
