Jesus General's letter to Troy Lee Gentry, country star & tame bear killer

Killing "Cubby"

Troy Lee Gentry
Montgomery Gentry

Dear Mr. Gentry,

It ain't easy being a country music star. That's especially true for someone like you whose entire image is centered around his masculinity. Heck, with all the hunting, war, and beating-up-people-for-Jesus imagery in your videos, I bet you're afraid to kick back for even a few minutes on the john and pee, sitting down, lest someone catches you--not that I'd ever approve of that kind of unmanly behavior, but I think you get my point.

That's why your recent arrest for shooting a caged tame bear with a bow and arrow is so damaging. It causes manly men like myself to lose respect for you. How can we continue to enjoy watching you taunt inexperienced impoverished young men into going to Iraq to fight our war now that we know that you shot Cubby in his cage?

As sad as it is for me to say this, your career is over unless you take drastic measures to save it, and by taking drastic measures, I mean you need to fight a wild bear.

I'm talking kicking his ass using nothing more than your fists. No guns, no bows, no cages, no "Cubbies" this time. Just you and a big, angry, wild bear. Make that a big, angry, wild, drunken bear--I think you'll need to get him really drunk first, or he'll literally eat you for lunch.

I'd be glad to videotape it.

Heterosexually yours,

Gen. JC Christian, patriot

Troy Gentry Accused of Killing Tame Bear
08.16.2006, 12:12 PM

Troy Lee Gentry, of the country singing duo Montgomery Gentry, has been accused of killing a tame black bear that federal officials say he tagged as killed in the wild. Gentry, 39, of Franklin, Tenn., and Lee Marvin Greenly, 46, of Sandstone, appeared Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Raymond Erickson in connection with a sealed indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Minneapolis.

Authorities allege that Gentry purchased the bear from Greenly, a wildlife photographer and hunting guide, then killed it with a bow and arrow in an enclosed pen on Greenly's property in October 2004.

The government alleges that Gentry and Greenly tagged the bear with a Minnesota hunting license and registered the animal with the state Department of Natural Resources as a wild kill.

Gentry allegedly paid about $4,650 for the bear, named Cubby. The bear's death was videotaped, and the tape later edited so Gentry appeared to shoot the animal in a "fair chase" hunting situation, the government alleges. If convicted, both Gentry and Greenly face a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a $20,000 fine.

2. If convicted they face a large fine
Convicted of what? Isn't that exactly the same thing Cheney does on his wild pheasant hunts? Hell he even shoots people and no one says much...

4. They've now raised the enlistment age to 42
so Mr. Gentry can now show his adoring fans how masculine he is by going over to Iraq and killing a few ragheads. Or he could shit his pants for a month like fellow "musician" and he-man Ted Nugent did to avoid military service

5. I'm thinking he'd go for option #2 (no pun intended)
I hear about this frigging chickenhawk coward punk and it almost makes me want to say "Come home, Toby Keith. All is forgiven."

WELL..."all" except for that heavily permed mullet. That can never be forgiven.
