West Virginia mascot who hunted cited for failure

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia University mascot who got in trouble for using his uniform musket to kill a bear has been cited for another problem - not wearing blaze orange during the bear hunt.

Mountaineers mascot Jonathan Kimble wears buckskin and a coonskin cap and fires the musket - loaded with black powder but minus ammunition - at home athletic events.

Kimble wasn't wearing the required hunter orange when he shot a black bear Dec. 3. The kill was legal but triggered a public outcry after Kimble posted a video online.

State Division of Natural Resources spokesman Hoy Murphy says hunters are required to wear 400 square inches of the high-visibility color for safety reasons.

Kimble has agreed to stop hunting with the musket. He didn't immediately comment Wednesday.
