Theresa Vail, a former Miss Kansas who hosted an adventure TV show has pleaded guilty to killing an Alaska grizzly bear without a state tag.
The sentence, issued Wednesday, includes one year of probation and a $750 fine.
A charging document says Vail, on a guided Theresa Vail hunt, held a single bear tag and shot a bear. When she attempted to kill it with a second shot, it says, she killed a second bear.
It says the master guide was contacted and a collective decision was made to fly out another tag, which Vail said she signed but backdated at the master guide’s request.
