Medicine Hat - Wildlife officials in Canada are accusing former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar, of shooting a mule deer buck and only keeping the trophy head.
Lesnar has been accused of shooting a mule deer buck in southern Alberta.
Lesnar and his hunting guide are being hit with three charges relating to illegal possession of wildlife, leaving meat to rot and improper tagging, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
According to the Toronto Sun, the charges were read out in Medicine Hat Provincial Court on Thursday.
Darcy Whiteside is a spokesman for Alberta Sustainable Resource Development, and he says that Lesnar’s party shot two animals and they failed to properly tag one of those animals.
Lesnar was not at Thursday’s hearing, according to the Washington Post. Lesnar is represented by a legal agent but he has not submitted to the jurisdiction so he could be arraigned.
Lesnar is scheduled to go to court on January 19.
