OZARKS, Mo. (AP) A Missouri poacher has been ordered to repeatedly watch the movie Bambi as part of his sentence in a scheme to illegally kill hundreds of deer.
David Berry Jr. was ordered to watch the Disney classic at least once a month during his year-long jail sentence in what conservation agents have called one of the largest deer poaching cases in state history.
The deer were trophy bucks taken illegally, mostly at night, for their heads, leaving the bodies of the deer to waste, said Don Trotter, the prosecuting attorney in Lawrence County.
