A Missouri judge sentenced deer hunter to one year in prison, the poacher who killed hundreds of deer was also sentenced to watch Disney's famous movie "Bambi" once a month.

Over nearly nine years, David Berry and his two sons, David Berry Jr., and Kyle Berry killed the deer, mostly at night, then cut off their heads and antlers – leaving the bodies to rot where they fell.

Lawrence County Judge Robert George sentenced Berry to a year in jail for illegally killing deer, and while he's in jail, he's required to watch the Walt Disney movie "Bambi" once a month.

the 1942 animated classic featured a scene where Bambi's mother was shot and killed by hunters.

The death of Bambi's mother is widely regarded as one of the most shocking, yet significant moments in cinematic history, as it introduced children to the concept of parental death in a way that had never been seen.

the other co-conspirators faced a litany of charges and paid nearly $200,000 in bonds and fines and served 33 days in jail, according to the department of conservation.

All the Berrys had their hunting, fishing and trapping privileges revoked for life.
