    Former Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler Now a Bear Slayer

    Jay Cutler took to social media to announce his slaying of a bear -- as you'd expect, social media responded.

    The last time former Pro Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler played a down in the NFL was for the Miami Dolphins in 2017. Cutler spent most of his career in Chicago (2009-2016) and was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2005.

    Since retirement, Cutler nearly went into broadcasting, has done podcasting, starred in a reality show with his ex-wife Kristin Cavallari, has gone into business, and, most recently, took down a bear.

    Jay Cutler: From Former Bears QB to Bear Slayer

    The former Bears quarterback has been hunting in Montana in the Big Sky Country. Cutler encountered a cinnamon black bear and shot it dead using his scoped bolt-action rifle.

    Cutler wasted no time taking his accomplishment to Instagram, “MT bear hunt in the books. Heading home to get some summer ale.”

    Of course, his comment section has been full of mixed feelings. While some joke, others aren’t too thrilled about him killing wildlife.

    Some of the comments include:

    “Jay Cutler killing Bears since 2009.”

    “Jay continues to hurt Bear fans.”

    “Killing the bears, just like the good old days.”

    All jokes aside, however, in Montana, Bears are protected by law due to being endangered species unless an individual is in a position of self-defense. Any individual going against this law could face a $50,000 fine and loss of hunting license.

    Cutler, of course, had his endangering moments during his time with the Bears, from throwing a league-leading 26 interceptions in 2009 to leading Chicago one game short of the Super Bowl to a load of injuries. Overall, Cutler has had an interesting history with bears.
