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.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?
