Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is offering a reward of as much as $1,000 for information about two bull elk that were killed south of Pompeys Pillar over the Nov. 18-19 weekend and illegally left to waste.
FWP game warden Courtney Tyree said someone killed the two elk on private land south of Interstate 94 and removed the heads, but left most of the rest of the animals to waste.
Anyone with information about the poaching is encouraged to call FWP’s 24-hour crime-reporting line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (800-847-6668). Those who call with information leading to a conviction of the people responsible for the illegal waste qualify for a cash reward of as much as $1,000.
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.
