MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia University mascot Jonathan Kimble says he has paid a $20 hunting citation and that he hopes the issue is in the past.
The Division of Natural Resources cited Kimble for failure to wear blaze orange when he killed a black bear in Pendleton County on Dec. 3 with the muzzleloader that's part of his costume.
Kimble told The Dominion Post that he paid the fine last week.
The kill was legal but it triggered an outcry after Kimble posted a video of it online. The rifle can fire ammunition, but only gunpowder is used at WVU events.
Kimble has agreed not to hunt with it anymore.
