(GREAT FALLS)- The latest in a rash of poaching cases this fall has Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks hoping a tip will help them find whoever shot and killed a cow moose in the Little Belt Mountains.
FWP reports the poaching happened on October 25th on Belt Park Road, which is at the south end of the range. FWP wardens say someone simply shot the cow, and when they found the kill two young calves were still standing nearby.
Anyone with information can help catch the poachers by calling 1-800-TIP-MONT. That allows informants to remain anonymous and rewards are offered.
The poaching comes after incidents where elk were killed near Whitehall and there have been several cases of deer and elk being poached in Western Montana.
