Jeff Hawn, Attachmate


When 32 bison, some of them pregnant, wandered onto Jeff Hawn’s Colorado ranch in 2008, he took action by hiring hunters to kill the intruders. Actually, the then-CEO of Attachmate gave the hunters the option to remove them live if they wanted to, but they chose to hunt, and apparently weren’t very good shots. Some of the carcasses had eight bullets in them when they were left to rot on the range. "What I find really disturbing is that these animals definitely suffered," the judge said at Hawn’s sentencing, according to a report in the Denver Post. The judge sentenced him to 10 days in Colorado’s Park County Jail.
