A Florida man who shot and killed a black bear on the Kenai Peninsula and then transported it to the Lower 48 in violation of federal law received his sentence this week. 

James L. Connolly, 63, of St. Petersburg, Florida, shot and killed the bear in the Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area in May 2018. The area is closed to all hunting and trapping. 

After killing the bear, Connolly transported it to a tannery in California, which ultimately shipped it to Connolly in Florida.
