In an e-mail to the newspaper, Lesnar offered insights into what happened: "In November 2010, I went on a filmed hunt in Alberta, Canada,” he stated. “It was sponsored by Fusion Ammunition and guided by Trophy Hunters Alberta. In Alberta, Americans can't hunt without a licensed outfitter. The outfitter is there to make sure you follow the rules. I had two deer tags for the trip, which meant I could legally shoot two deer.” On the first day of the trip, Lesnar said he shot a mule deer and on the second day, he shot a white tail. “Video from the hunt has been on the Internet for over a year,” Lesnar said. “After I shot the mule deer, I failed to immediately tag it. As far as I was involved, that's all there is to it.”Word count: 426
