Game wardens searching for specific truck in one incident

BILLINGS – Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is offering rewards of as much as $1,000 for information leading to a conviction in two recent criminal cases involving deer that were killed and left to waste in south central Montana.

In one case, game wardens are looking for a person who illegally dumped two mule deer hind quarters into a commercial garbage bin at Adam & Eve Stores on Mullowney Lane in south Billings at about 2:40 p.m. on Oct. 8.

Photos of the illegal activity show that a man and a child, about five years old, pulled up to the dumpster garbage bin and illegally dump the deer parts. They were in a black Ford F-150 pickup with a large scratch down the passenger side, chrome rocker panels with the back part missing on the passenger side, side steps and a crooked front license plate.

Game wardens also are looking for information about a 3X4 mule deer buck that was shot multiple times with a small-caliber gun and left on the night of Thursday, Oct. 28 just off of Indian Creek Road, a mile east of its intersection with East Arrow Creek Road east of Billings.
