Wasted antelope found north of Great Falls

Posted: Updated:

GREAT FALLS - The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks is investigating the case of a wasted antelope north of Great Falls.

The carcass was found near Black Horse Lake Road between Bootlegger Trail and US Highway 87.

The antelope was killed on Sept. 24, according to FWP.

The antelope was found headless near a Quonset hut building.

A witness saw a small red pickup truck with a ladder rack leaving the scene.

FWP is asking anyone with information about the incident to call 1-800-TIPMONT or Game Warden Kqyn Kuka at 406-750-3570.

Callers to the TIP-MONT line may remain anonymous; informants are kept confidential, and may be eligible for a reward.

FWP provides the following information about poaching:

Poaching is the illegal killing of fish or wildlife. It can include illegal killing of fish or wildlife:

- for commercial trade

- for ego gratification

- in closed areas, during closed times, or taking more than the law allows

FWP investigations of organized and professional poaching grew from about 20 in the 1990s to about 40 new cases a year today. In addition, poachers:

- reduce recreational opportunities for law abiding anglers, hunters, wildlife watchers, and other outdoor enthusiasts

- kill and waste Montana game animals, threatened and endangered species, and even nongame animals

- target Montana's fish and wildlife resource for personal profit
