(GunReports.com) — Outspoken gun activist and rock star Ted Nugent has agreed to plead guilty to transporting a black bear he illegally killed in southeast Alaska.
Nugent made the admission in signing a plea agreement with federal prosecutors that was filed Friday in U.S. District Court.
The plea agreement says Nugent illegally shot and killed the bear in May 2009 on Sukkwan Island days after wounding a bear in a bow hunt, which counted toward a state seasonal limit of one bear. The document says Nugent knowingly possessed and transported the bear in misdemeanor violation of the federal Lacey Act.
Nugent agreed to pay a $10,000 fine, agreed to a two-year probation, including a special condition that he not hunt or fish in Alaska or Forest Service properties for one year, and agreed to create a public service announcement that would be broadcast on his show every second week for one year, the document states.
