Is THAT All? Man gets 10 days in jail for bison killing

I'll tell ya what buddy bwoy
(AKA 'punk little F*** Face'!)

Leave the gun @ home BIG MAN, and meet me in the arena... No waiting for 'High Noon'. NOW! We've got a score to settle.

DENVER, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- A 45-year-old Texas man will spend 10 days in jail in Park County, Colo., for masterminding the killing of 32 bison last year, a judge says.

Park County District Judge Stephen Groome ruled this week Texas businessman Jeffrey Hawn earned a reduced sentence on a cruelty to animals charge due to a deal with the district attorney's office, The Denver Post said Thursday.

Hawn had been accused of organizing the shooting deaths of the bison last February and March.

The bison had been owned by rancher Monte Downare of Colorado's South Park region, but had apparently wandered onto Hawn's property.

Groome said while handing down his sentence Wednesday he was disturbed by the fact that some of the animals were killed by up to eight bullets.

"What I find really disturbing is that these animals definitely suffered," the judge said.

The Post said Hawn offered an apology in court prior to being sentenced.

"With the benefit of hindsight, I made a lot of mistakes," he told the court.
