GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials say two Tennessee men have been sentenced for killing a bear out of season and throwing the carcass off a cliff.

The agency said Tuesday that Harley Boss Manley, of Martin, and David Ronnie Coleman, of Union City, pleaded guilty earlier this month to killing a black bear north of Glenwood Springs just before fall bear hunting season started Sept. 1.

Their hunting privileges were suspended for five years.

Manley received a two-year deferred prison sentence for felony willful destruction. He must forfeit his bow, pay a $4,000 fine and donate $6,000 to a Colorado tip line for wildlife violations. A Garfield County judge ordered that Manley be placed under supervised probation.

Coleman was fined $3,000 and must donate $4,000 to the tip line.
