Somewhere at PETA headquarters, they are putting Ted Nugent's name in a Burn Book.
Aging rocker, reality star and hunting enthusiast Ted Nugent was fined $1,750 after pleading no contest to charges of using illegal methods to kill a young dear on his reality show, Spirit of The Wild.
While taping his Outdoor Channel series, Ted was caught baiting and killing a spike buck with a bow and arrow. The California Department of Fish and Game explain that this is illegal due to the size of the animal. It is considered much too small for hunting.
Somehow, we don't think Ted had too much remorse for Bambi. Good to know though how much a young deer's life is worth to some people!
P.S. - Who else thinks that despite it being on a channel we have never heard of before, Ted's show still gets better ratings that Mushy's Beautiful People ever did? Anyone?
