WISDOM — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens are seeking information about a wolverine illegally shot in November northwest of Wisdom.

An agency press release says on Nov. 10 wardens received a report of a wolverine carcass found on U.S. Forest Service Road 7377 near Schultz Saddle and the Continental Divide.

According to the release, a game warden located the carcass and confirmed the wolverine had been shot, skinned, and abandoned. Wolverine harvest is currently illegal in Montana.

Wildlife authorities ask anyone with information to visit the TIP-MONT web page, or call the FWP violation reporting hotline at 1-800-TIP-MONT. Informants may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
