MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia University mascot is facing a deadline to enter a plea on a citation related to killing a bear with the musket that's part of his costume.
 
Jonathan Kimble was cited for failure to wear blaze orange when he shot the black bear on Dec. 3.
 
State officials say hunters are required to wear 400 square inches of the high-visibility color for safety reasons.
 
Kimble has until Wednesday to enter a plea in Pendleton County Magistrate Court. He faces a fine of up to $50, plus court costs.
 
The kill was legal but triggered a public outcry after Kimble posted a video online. The musket can fire ammunition but fires only gunpowder at WVU events.
 
Kimble has since agreed to stop hunting with the musket.
