Former Miss Kansas Pleads Guilty in Illegal Hunting Case
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A former beauty queen who hosted an adventure TV show has pleaded guilty to killing an Alaska grizzly bear without a state tag. The sentence for Theresa Vail, who was Miss Kansas 2013 and participated in the 2014 Miss America pageant, includes one year of probation and a $750 fine. A charging document says Vail, on a guided hunt, held a single bear tag and shot a bear. When she attempted to kill it with a second shot, it says, she killed a second bear. It says the master guide was contacted and a collective decision was made to fly out another tag, which Vail said she signed but backdated at the master guide's request. Vail hosted the Outdoor Channel series "Limitless with Theresa Vail."
