A high school in Maine has denied a student's senior photo depicting him holding a shotgun.
Wade Gelinas told WCSH Friday that hunting is a tradition in his family, so he wanted his senior photo to capture the sport he loves.
But officials at Bonny Eagle High School will not allow Gelinas to use the photo in the yearbook.
Principal Lori Napolitano told WCSH the school's code of conduct prohibits weapons of any kind and that such photo requests are always denied.
Gelinas plans on submitting a senior photo without a weapon.
