According to Fox News, a Missouri man was sentenced to 1 year in a jail for the illegal killing of “several hundred deer” in the past few years. While he’s in jail, the judge also ordered him to watch the Disney classic Bambi, once a month.
The poachers would take the heads of the “trophy bucks” and left “the bodies of the deer to waste.”
“In situations like this, with serial poachers who have no regard for the animals, rules of fair chase or aren’t bothered by the fact that they’re stealing from others, it’s all about greed and ego,” Randy Doman, the Missouri Department of Conservation’s protection division chief, told the Springfield News-Leader.

“To date, this group of poachers has paid $151,000 in bonds and $51,000 in fines and court costs and collectively served 33 days in jail,” the Conservation Department said.
