Jesse Schoeller was ordered Tuesday to pay nearly $3,000 in fines and court costs for killing the bear out of season.
Schoeller was an employee of the landfill when he and a friend went to the site on Sept. 1, a day before the black bear archery season began.
According to the Aspen Daily News, Schoeller lost his job after the incident.
