Former UFC champion Brock Lesnar pleads guilty to Alberta hunting charge
MEDICINE HAT, Alta. – Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has admitted to a hunting infraction in southern Alberta.
A lawyer for the mixed martial arts star appeared in a Medicine Hat court and pleaded guilty on his client’s behalf to improper tagging of an animal during a hunting trip in November 2010.
Lesnar was fined $1,725 and given a six-month hunting suspension.
Two other charges of leaving meat to rot and illegal possession of wildlife were dropped.
Lesnar, 34, was accused by fish and wildlife officials of shooting a mule deer buck but only packing the trophy head out.
The director of the Alberta Professional Outfitters Society said it is considered unethical to leave edible meat in the field.
The former NCAA wrestling champion and pro wrestling star was charged along with a hunting guide.
