The Cubby Controversy: Feds indict country singer for bagging captive bruin

Federal authorities have indicted country singer Troy Gentry for killing Cubby, a 600-pound captive-raised black bear well-known to wildlife photographers who paid to snap his picture at the Minnesota Wildlife Connection, an 80-acre fenced property owned by Lee Marvin Greenly, who is also charged. According to the indictment, in 2004, Gentry bought the bear for $4,650, shot it dead with a bow and arrow, and tagged it as if it were killed in the wild. Gentry's lawyer says the singer prides himself as an ethical hunter and thought what he did was legal, adding that "the bear was not killed in a cage," but was "roaming around in a fenced area of several acres."
