Poacher ordered by judge to watch Bambi repeatedly as part of sentence

Oh deer.

Watching Bambi at any time feels like emotional punishment, so it seems only fitting that a poacher has been ordered to watch the harrowing Disney movie as part of his sentencing.

29-year-old David Homer Berry from Missouri was among a group of poachers who were found guilty of killing hundreds of deer illegally in what is being described as one of the biggest poaching cases ever in the state.

The men were found guilty of hunting out of season, using illegal hunting equipment, and killing the deer while driving in their vehicle.

Berry was sentenced to one year in prison, but part of his sentencing passed down by County Judge Robert E Greene is to watch Bambi once a month, every month, for as long as he is in prison.

The 1942 Disney classic has the ability to turn just about every viewer into an emotional, blubbering mess, so we're very curious to see what Berry's reactions are once his time is served.

Because we're not monsters, we're not going to show you the waterworks-inducing hunting scene itself, so instead we'll go with this cute scene where Bambi tries to walk on ice...
