Killing Tamed Bears Is His Thing



Somebody ought to write a song about country singers who sing about "I ain't tradin' in my family's safety just to save on a little gas" and "I ain't gonna spare the rod because that ain't what my daddy did" and "You ain't gonna be my judge cuz my judge will judge us all one day" then killing a defenseless, tamed animal in its pen for bragging rights:

Troy Lee Gentry, of the country singing duo Montgomery Gentry, has been accused of killing a tame black bear that federal officials say he tagged as killed in the wild.

Gentry, 39, of Franklin, Tennessee, and Lee Marvin Greenly, 46, of Sandstone, appeared Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Raymond Erickson in connection with a sealed indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Minneapolis.

Authorities allege that Gentry purchased the bear from Greenly, a wildlife photographer and hunting guide, then killed it with a bow and arrow in an enclosed pen on Greenly's property in October 2004.
Mighty manly of you, Troy (that's him driving the big truck, pretending to bag a deer), although I think it would be even manlier if you locked yourself up in a cage with an untamed bear, then wrestled and killed it with your bare hands. Whaddaya say?
