I just changed my mind about the death penalty
I say hanging is waaaaay too good one Mr. Troy Gentry, one-half of "country" duo Montgomery Gentry (he's the charming fella with the microphone). The man is officially lower than whale shit, and in a just world, would end up in a similar location after my crew and I forced him to walk the plank.
But Pirate, you say, why all the rage? Here's why:
[A]ccording to a federal indictment unsealed Tuesday, there was nothing good or clean about the death of a tame bear named Cubby at the hands of Troy Lee Gentry.Ooooo, what tough guy! Wow, it sure must've taken a lot of skill and courage to kill a caged animal that had been raised in captivity! Troy, I hope you saved some of that manly prowess for when you go to prison, I heard that sometime the fellas there get a little rambuncious and like to "tussle." And this time, you'll be in the cage with them, tough guy.
The charges said Gentry killed the bear with a bow and arrow in October 2004 while it was enclosed in a pen on Greenly's property.
Greenly refused to comment on the incident Tuesday, and a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office said she didn't know how large the pen was.
An adult black bear normally weighs 250 to 350 pounds. Cubby had been raised in captivity and was housed at the Wildlife Connection, a private preserve that bills itself as a place where animal lovers can photograph creatures in the wild.
After the kill, Gentry and Greenly allegedly tagged the bear with a Minnesota hunting license and registered it with the state Department of Natural Resources as if it had been killed in the wild.The kill was videotaped and later edited to make it appear that Gentry had killed the bear in a "fair chase" hunting situation, the indictment said. The hide was sent to a taxidermist in Kentucky.
