Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Game Wardens are asking for the public’s help in leading them to those responsible for multiple deer recently poached and found dumped near Glendive.
Three white-tailed deer and two mule deer were discovered south of Glendive just off of Marsh Road in the OHV area. Both of the mule deer were bucks while two of the whitetail deer were bucks and one was a fawn. The mule deer bucks had their heads cut off while one of the whitetail bucks had its skull cap and antlers removed. A small amount of the meat had been removed from most of the carcasses but the majority of the animals were left to rot.
FWP Warden Josh Leonard is investigating the incident and says he believes the poaching and dumping of the deer took place in a period from mid-December to mid-January. Warden Leonard also noted that the investigation thus far has yielded some evidence left at the scene. He is asking the public for assistance in solving this wildlife crime.
Anyone who has information on these deer can contact Warden Leonard directly at 406-853-7500 or can call FWP’s 24-hour TIPMONT line at 1-800-847-6668. Those calling the TIPMONT line may remain anonymous if they so choose. Individuals who contribute information leading to a conviction may be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward.
