A judge in the US is forcing a deer poacher to watch 'Bambi' in prison once a month.

Missouri judge Robert George sentenced David Berry to a year in prison for illegally killing deer.

Over nearly nine years, Mr. Berry killed the deer, mostly at night, then cut off their heads and antlers - leaving the bodies to rot where they fell.

In a unique twist, he's required to watch the Walt Disney animated classic in which Bambi's mother is shot and killed by hunters.

Here's the scene that the judge wants Mr. Berry to learn from:

Although there are restrictions, sometimes judges get creative in their sentencing and move away from what would be seen as traditional punishments such as anger management or drug treatment.  

Mr. Berry's first viewing of the film must be before December 23rd.
