A Pointe Coupee Parish man is ordered to pay $10,250 in civil restitution after being found guilty of killing a Louisiana black bear. 30-year-old Robert Kimble of Lettsworth shot and killed a female bear on Yancy Wildlife Management Area in Concordia Parish last November. General Counsel of Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Yolanda Martin says why she demanded the restitution.

“He violated the statute 56:1163 of taking a black bear during a closed season.”

According to the LDWF investigation, the bear was found dead after a mortality signal was received from the bear’s radio collar. Martin says Kimble admitted to shooting the bear.

“He thought it could have been a feral hog. He was responsible enough to go back and then cooperate with the agency.”

Martin says Kimble’s hunting and fishing licenses are revoked until he pays the restitution.
