He was sentenced to hard time — and a hard-to-watch Disney film.
A Missouri poacher who was convicted of illegally killing and beheading hundreds of deer has been ordered to watch “Bambi” every month while he’s behind bars, according to a new report.
David Berry Jr., 29, was sentenced to a year behind bars earlier this month for killing hundreds of deer over three years with members of his family — taking their heads as trophies and leaving the animals’ bodies behind to rot, officials told the Springfield News-Leader reports.
But to really drive the message home, he was also ordered to watch the 1942 animated Disney movie “Bambi” — including its heart-wrenching scene where a hunter shoots the titular fawn’s mother — once a month while he serves his time, according to the paper.
Berry’s first screening must be on or before Dec. 23.
