BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - Two Southeast Texas brothers who admitted they killed a bottlenose dolphin with an arrow have each been sentenced to a year of probation, including a ban on hunting and fishing.

The Beaumont Enterprise (https://bit.ly/1Fv6Wqf ) reports that 23-year-old Cory James Moseley and 18-year-old Cade Ryan Moseley were sentenced in federal court Wednesday. The brothers also must pay about $7,300 in restitution and perform community service.

The brothers pleaded guilty in February to taking a marine mammal from U.S. waters. Federal law defines “taking” in this case as anything from harassment to killing.

Evidence presented at court showed the brothers were fishing on Cow Bayou, near Bridge City, in 2014, when they shot at two dolphins with a compound bow, fatally striking one.

Bridge City is 110 miles west of Houston.
