UFC Star Brock Lesnar Faces Illegal Deer Hunting Charges in Canada
Alberta wildlife officials arrested the TV pugilist and a guide on three counts, including possession of a controlled animal.
TORONTO - Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter Brock Lesnar and a guide are facing illegal hunting charges under Alberta's Wildlife Act, including the alleged possession of a controlled animal.
The three counts, which include improper affixation of tags and spoilage of skin and edible flesh, follow a deer hunting trip near Medicine Hat, Alberta in November 2010, the CBC.ca website reported Friday.
“We have hunters that come across the world, and it is the responsibility of the guide and outfitter to know the rules, as well as the hunters that come up here,” Darcy Whiteside of Sustainable Resource Development told the Canadian website about the charges brought against Lesnar and the hunting guide, Chad Stryker.
Both men are set to appear in a Medicine Hat courtroom in mid-January, and face penalties that range from a fine to a two-year jail term for each count.
