Missouri man must watch ‘Bambi’ monthly as part of poaching punishment, judge rules

A Missouri poacher involved in the illegal killing of “several hundred deer” over three years, taking their heads and leaving their bodies to rot, must watch the Disney classic “Bambi” once a month while he remains behind bars, a judge reportedly ruled.

David Berry Jr. was one of three men from a southwest Missouri family convicted in what the state’s Conservation Department called one of its “largest conservation cases involving the illegal taking of deer.”

After pleading guilty, Berry Jr. was sentenced to one year in jail in Lawrence County on Dec. 6, according to a news release. The 29-year-old was also sentenced to 120 days in jail in a nearby county for a felony firearms probation violation.
