Text of apology letter
The is the text of the letter of apology written by Kyle Huff following the July 2, 2000 shooting of a moose sculpture.
The crime was initially charged as a felony, but prosecutors later said the amount of damage was lower than initially estimated so the charge was downgraded to a misdemeanor, according to Daniel M. Guzynski, deputy county attorney.
The letter is addressed to John Rawlings, the sculpture's creator. It was filed in Flathead County Justice Court on October 10, 2001.
Dear Mr. Rawlings,
I am writing this letter to you in an effort to apologize for a stupid, drunken act that I comited (sic) about this same time a year ago.
I am to blame for the shooting of your moose on the loose known as Daphney. I don't really know what to say to you, or how exactly to apologize, but I want you to know that this act was not a personal attack, and that it was not intended to bring you or your family any sort of stress. I did what I did mostly because of the influence of alcohol. I know that this is not a very good excuse, but I still hope that you can accept this sincere apology.
I am very sorry about this. Please forgive me for any stress this has caused you.
