Florida couple plead guilty to attacking bears with dogs
OCALA, Fla. (AP) – A married couple have pleaded guilty to using donuts and pastries to lure black bears to rural Florida, allowing packs of dogs to attack them and then release the gruesome videos on social networks.
Charles Scarbrough has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit racketeering, baiting and animal fighting, illegal use of a two-way communication device and illegal taking of a black bear, reports Ocala Star Banner . He agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. For this reason, sentencing has been postponed, even though he faces five years probation to more than two years in prison.
