The DC Mind, Part 173,880

"What, you think your family is more important than a grizzly bear?  Off to prison, pal."

Jeremy M. Hill, 33, pleaded not guilty to killing the grizzly with a rifle on his 20-acre property near Porthill, Idaho, at the Canadian border.

Because the Endangered Species Act classifies the grizzly as a threatened species, Hill was charged with a misdemeanor.

The trial has been set for October 4 and Hill’s lawyer, Marc Lyons, said he plans to defend Hill on the basis of self-defense and protection of family.

Hill shot the damn thing and called the Feds to let them know he did it.  THAT was a mistake, obviously.
