PLEASE take the time to call the U.S. District Attorney's Office and suggest he be given a prison sentence and no probation.

Country Star Accused of Killing Tame Bear

Wednesday, August 16, 2006; Posted: 1:28 p.m. EDT (17:28 GMT)

DULUTH, Minnesota (AP) -- Troy Lee Gentry, of the country singing duo Montgomery Gentry, has been accused of killing a tame black bear that federal officials say he tagged as killed in the wild.

Gentry, 39, of Franklin, Tennessee, and Lee Marvin Greenly, 46, of Sandstone, appeared Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Raymond Erickson in connection with a sealed indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Minneapolis.

Authorities allege that Gentry purchased the bear from Greenly, a wildlife photographer and hunting guide, then killed it with a bow and arrow in an enclosed pen on Greenly's property in October 2004.

The government alleges that Gentry and Greenly tagged the bear with a Minnesota hunting license and registered the animal with the state Department of Natural Resources as a wild kill.

Gentry allegedly paid about $4,650 for the bear, named Cubby. The bear's death was videotaped, and the tape later edited so Gentry appeared to shoot the animal in a "fair chase" hunting situation, the government alleges.

If convicted, both Gentry and Greenly face a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a $20,000 fine.

Gentry's manager, Johnny Dorris, said Wednesday that Gentry, an outdoorsman and hunter, expects to be exonerated.

Gentry "relied on the knowledge and expertise of a local guide to obtain the proper permit," Dorris said in a written statement. "Troy felt what he did was legal and in full compliance of the law and was surprised to hear of the indictment."

Greenly did not return a phone message seeking comment.

Montgomery Gentry, along with co-singer Eddie Montgomery, are known for hits such as "My Town" and "If You Ever Stop Loving Me."

There are two threads about this at LO, dori...one in General Discussion, and one in Breaking News...there's also talk (some of it disgusting) at the SMirking Chimp.

Little Button Mushroom Gentry...if he lived on the Planet of the Apes, his head might be used to adorn the wall of an ape's mansion!

I'd like to see him set down in Grizzly territory somewhere, without a weapon of any kind, and then let the bears have at him.

Yes...I'm upset about this and I hope he's prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, which probably won't be much.

Canned hunts are popular with people who like to call themselves 'sportsmen'. Most likely there won't be much punishment involved, and he might pick up the 'ugly American' fans.

True sportsmen don't hunt caged animals. Or animals that were hand fed and tamed before they became 'game'. I don't care for hunting but at least have respect for people who are sure of their shot and don't leave an animal suffering.

To kill a tame animal for 'sport' or 'fun' is sick!

There was a game a while back where deer had the guns and were hunting 'sportsmen'. Would have loved to have seen what the game was like...

Here's one for you.
Although very unsportsman like, is it much different than how we treat and slaughter beef cattle, chickens, pigs?
