Bull Moose Shot, Wasted Near Butte
Is it just me, or does it seem like we have been seeing way too many incidents of poaching, and wildlife simply left to waste? Or, are we just noticing these stories more often?
Here's yet another story involving an animal simply shot and left to waste here in Montana.
According to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), a mature bull moose was shot and left to waste in the Highland Mountains south of Butte. FWP Game Warden Shane Yaskus says he moose was shot between Nov. 15 and 22, east of Melrose in Camp Creek. The inside spread on the antlers of the moose measured more than 35 inches, Yaskus said.
FWP is asking anyone with information on the incident to call 1-800-TIPMONT. Callers are kept confidential and a reward of up to $1,000 is possible.
