UFC 141's Brock Lesnar Hit With Charges for Hunting Violations

If you know anything about Brock Lesnar, you know the man loves to hunt. Unfortunately, it looks like he didn't exactly follow the rules on a recent trip to Canada for a hunting trip and now faces charges along with his guide for not following a few hunting laws.

Slam! Sports with the report:

The burly fighter failed to properly tag at least one of two animals his party had shot - a white tail and a mule deer, said Darcy Whiteside, spokesman for Alberta Sustainable Resource Development.

"They shot an animal and didn't tag it," said Whiteside.

His guide and Albertan Chad Stryker, who was allegedly accompanying the celebrity, is also charged with the offences - unlawful possession of wildlife, abandon/wastage of the edible flesh of big game, and after killing wildlife, failure to immediately affix tag.

The alleged offences occurred over several days in mid November on a grazing reserve near Manyberries.

"In plain language, it would be considered poaching," said Whiteside.

Neither man appeared in court and it looks as though the court hearing has been pushed back to January 21, 2012.
