Seven Deer Shot And Left To Waste
By Toby Trigger


Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Enforcement is asking the public for help in solving a case involving seven deer that were killed in the Norris area over the holiday weekend.

A call came in Sunday, July 3 from a landowner off Sterling Road who had found a dead white-tailed doe on his property. In responding, a warden found another deer – this time a young mule deer buck – on an adjacent property. Then, the owner of that adjacent property found an additional five mule deer on his property. All shot and left to waste.

FWP is asking anyone that may have heard or seen anything that may be related to this case – particularly on Saturday, July 2 – to call 800-TIP-MONT. Callers may remain anonymous
