TROY GENTRY ATTORNEY STATEMENT

Troy Gentry, one-half of the hit duo Montgomery Gentry, has denied through an attorney that he broke federal law by illegally tagging a tame black bear while in Minnesota nearly two years ago.

Troy is accused of killing a tame black bear that he bought from Lee Marvin Greenly in Sandstone, Minn., in Oct. of 2004. According to the government, the two killed the animal in a pen, and then claimed that the bear was killed in the wild. Falsely tagging the bear in such a manner is a violation of the federal Lacey Act. A jury trial in Duluth, Minn., has been scheduled for Nov. 27. Troy’s Minneapolis-based attorney, Ron Meshbesher, has issued a statement, saying that, “Troy absolutely denies that he knowingly and willfully did anything illegal, and is confident he will be exonerated.” The statement adds that, “Troy is an avid environmentalist and hunter who supports and follows all game laws.”
