UFC Fighter Brock Lesnar Pleads Guilty to Canadian Hunting Charge
Brock Lesnar is known for his fighting skills, and had been invited to Canada to hunt for a filmed episode sponsored by Trophy Hunters Alberta in 2010. Lesnar needed a guide, to hunt legally in Canada.
Three charges were filed against him after this 2010 hunt. One for unlawful possession of wildlife, this was for a whitetail deer. Second charge was for wastage of wildlife, from a mule deer. Third charge and the one that Lesnar plead guilty to was for failure to immediately tag an animal.
Lesnar had two deer tags, so assumed he was able to harvest two deer. He shot a mule deer on the first day and a whitetail on the second day. He did not immediately tag the mule deer, which he accepts as being his fault and making a mistake. Lesnar says he was unable to transport the meat across the border, and believed that the guide would take care of it properly.
The guide faces all three charges as well, and will go to court in January.
Lesnar says this is an accident that happens frequently to hunters. Lesnar paid $1725 and will not be allowed to hunt in Alberta for 6 months. He says he loves Canada and can not wait to come back. From The Vancouver Sun.
