Graphic Video Shows 2 Men Killing Hibernating Bear and Her Cubs
A horrible video taken from a wildlife camera in Alaska surfaced earlier this week which shows two men shooting and killing a hibernating mother bear and her cubs.
According to WDIV, Andrew Renner, 41, and Owen Renner, 18 (father & son), illegally shot and killed a black bear and her two cubs. The Humane Society said it is not illegal in all parts of Alaska to kill a mother bear and her cubs, but it is in this particular area of the state.
I don't know anything about Alaska and they're laws but I find it heartbreaking that it's legal in most areas to kill a mother and her cubs. To me personally, it seems like a straight-up slaughter, especially in this particular situation. I'm glad it was illegal in this area and these losers were caught for their crimes.
The incident dates back to April of last year and both men were arrested and charged with some big fat fines.
According to KTUU, Andrew Renner was sentenced to five months in jail with two months suspended, pay a fine of $20,000 with $11,000 suspended, forfeit his 22’ Sea Sport ocean boat and trailer, 2012 GMC Sierra pickup truck, two rifles, two handguns, two iPhones, and two sets of backcountry skis which were used in the offenses. His hunting license was revoked for 10 years.
Owen Renner was slapped with suspended jail time, some community service, and his hunting license was suspended for a couple of years. They should have fined the dope for not wearing a shirt and looking like a douchebag.
