West Virginia mascot who hunted cited for failure
Wednesday - 12/12/2012, 9:53am EST
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia University mascot who got in trouble for using his uniform musket to kill a bear has been cited for another problem _ not wearing blaze orange during the bear hunt.
Mountaineers mascot Jonathan Kimble wears buckskin and a coonskin cap and fires the musket _ loaded with black powder but minus ammunition _ at home athletic events.
Kimble wasn't wearing the required hunter orange when he shot a black bear Dec. 3. The kill was legal but triggered a public outcry after Kimble posted a video online.
State Division of Natural Resources spokesman Hoy Murphy says hunters are required to wear 400 square inches of the high-visibility color for safety reasons.
Kimble has agreed to stop hunting with the musket. He didn't immediately comment Wednesday.
