Deer can be expensive, especially when they cost you $1,725 and a six-month hunting suspension.

Looks like a few bucks are going to cost Brock Lesnar ... a few bucks.

The former UFC heavyweight champion was pinched north of the border for violating three counts of the Alberta Fish and Wildlife Act, including improperly affixing tags, spoilage of skin/edible flesh and possession of a controlled animal.

The Winnipeg Free Press has more:

A lawyer for Brock Lesnar appeared in a Medicine Hat court and pleaded guilty on his client's behalf to improper tagging of an animal during a hunting trip last year. He was fined $1,725 and given a six-month hunting suspension. Lesnar, who is 34, was accused by fish and wildlife officials of shooting a mule deer buck but only packing the trophy head out. He was charged along with a hunting guide. The director of the Alberta Professional Outfitters Society said it is considered unethical to leave edible meat in the field.

Lesnar likely plead guilty in an effort to put his legal troubles behind him prior to his UFC 141 headliner against Alistair Overeem on Dec. 30, 2011, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sounds like the former WWE champion is used to disposing of big game on his terms. Anyone think that will be the case against "Demolition Man" come fight night? Or is Lesnar going to go from predator to prey?
