BILLINGS — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens and an area landowner are offering a reward for information about three mule deer bucks that were killed and illegally dumped east of Billings late last week.
FWP game warden Ben Gleason said someone shot the mule deer bucks, removed two of the heads and dumped the carcasses along Old Highway 87 near South Fly Creek Road.
FWP is offering a reward of as much as $1,000 for information leading to a conviction of the persons responsible for the illegal kill. An adjacent landowner is offering an additional $250 to the reward. Anyone with information about the crimes is encouraged to call Gleason at (406) 200-5736 or FWP’s 24-hour wildlife tip line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (800-847-6668).
The 1-800-TIP-MONT program is a toll-free number where people can report violations of fish, wildlife or park regulations. Callers may remain anonymous. It is similar to the well-known Crimestoppers program and offers rewards for information resulting in conviction of persons who abuse Montana’s natural, historic or cultural resources.
