Montana FWP seeks info on two poached bull elk
Two bull elk were poached in Blaine County, Montana last week. The dead elk were found near Peoples Creek Road, approximately two and a half miles southwest of Cleveland, according to the Billings Gazette. Investigators believe they were shot with a rifle between May 19 and May 21.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (Montana FWP) Region 6 game wardens want to know if you have any information concerning this incident. According to Billings Gazette, Warden Haden Hussey received the tip on May 22 “about a dead elk on a hillside” but, during his investigation, he found “a second elk about 100 yards away from the first.” Further, while speaking with local residents, Hussey learned that “there had been a lot of traffic in the area.”
