Court orders jailed deer poacher to watch 'Bambi' once a month
A judge has ordered a poacher to repeatedly watch the film 'Bambi' after hundreds of deer were illegally killed and beheaded.
David Berry Jr (29) was told he must view the animated Disney classic at least once each month during a jail sentence of one year.
The movie includes an iconic scene in which a hunter shoots the fawn Bambi's mother.
Berry's first viewing of the film in a Missouri prison must be before December 23, Judge Robert George ordered.
Conservation agents called the poaching case one of the biggest in the history of the state. The deer were killed for their heads, and their bodies were left to rot.
Berry was convicted of illegally taking wildlife in south-west Missouri's Lawrence County.
