CARO, Mich. (AP) - A man caught with nine dead deer in his barn has been sentenced to 15 days in the Tuscola County jail.
John Cooper of Vassar Township was also ordered to pay $6,500 in fines Wednesday. His hunting privileges were revoked through 2014.
The Saginaw News says Cooper has denied shooting the deer but still pleaded guilty to illegally having them. Authorities also seized 22 guns last November.
Tuscola County authorities were having the deer carcasses tested to determine if the animals were shot with any of the weapons.
Cooper will be allowed to leave the jail in Caro to work during the day.
