Ted Nugent Scratched from Concert, Forced to Pay Bear-Killing Fine

by at . Comments

Ted Nugent may not be facing any legal repercussions for comments made last week about Barack Obama, but the musician is still dealing with the fallout.

The veteran rocker's appearance at a July 23 concert in honor of the U.S. military - to be held at Fort Knox in Kentucky and co-headlined by REO Speedwagon and Styx - has been canceled.

"After learning of opening act Ted Nugent's recent public comments about the president of the United States, Ft. Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance," read a post made on the U.S. Army's Ft. Knox Facebook page.

Elsewhere, Nugent has agreed to pay a $10,000, serve probation and record a PSA as part of a plea bargain in relation to a May 2009 incident in which he illegally killed a black bear in Alaska as part of his Outdoor Channel TV show Spirit of the Wild.

In court documents, Nugent says he killed the animal in question - via bow and arrow - days after wounding another bear in the state; according to Alaska hunting laws, a hunter is only permitted to bag one bear per season.

But back to the canceled concert appearance: Do you think the organizers should have barred Nugent from participating?

@veshti- I hope to god this is the last black president. If a minority is in office- let the next one be Hispanic- when was the last time you saw a Hispanic sitting on his ass! The landscape is changing. This free program - Government Dependant Bullshit is coming to a close in the next 5. Taxpayers like me and Ted are not going to continue getting sucked dry. If you think "Race" has something to do with Ted speaking out maybe YOU should check your own prejudice side. OBAMA SUCKS- 97% of BLACKS VOTED FOR OBAMA- meanwhile you cant get 3 blacks in a room to agree on a damn thing! Still- for some crazy reason 97% agreed he was the best choice! Give me a break!

Ted Nuggent was also arrested in Yuba County California for illegally poaching deer. He was arrested and fined.There seems to be a pattern here of using his hunting license for illegal behavior.

I am not an Obama fan, but good greif! To say those things he said is plain dumb! Did he really think it was no big deal?

Um, the President is Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, so yes, the ban is 100% appropriate.
