Belington Business Owner Offers to Help Mountaineer Mascot With Fine, Court Costs

Posted: Updated:

The DNR cited the Mountaineer Mascot Monday for hunting without wearing blaze orange.

A business owner in Belington said he's willing to help pay the fine and court costs which could total more than $50.

Matt Ryan, the owner of Ryan's Auto Repair, has offered his help to Jonathan Kimble.

Ryan said that as a fellow sportsman, he wants Kimble to know he has plenty of support

"If he doesn't need help paying the fine, we'll help him mount the bear, whatever he wants to do," Ryan said. "Just as an outdoorsman, and knowing that he know that we have his back, we're standing behind him one-hundred percent."

The DNR cited Kimble after a video of him shooting a bear with his Mountaineer musket went viral on the Internet.
