Reward offered for deer dumped on south edge of Billings
BILLINGS – Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is offering a reward of as much as
$1,000 for information about a white-tailed deer that was shot with an arrow,
partially butchered and left to waste Wednesday on the south edge of Billings.
FWP game warden Connor Langel said the remains of the buck deer were found
under an apple tree at South 27th Street and Garden Avenue. The head, parts of
the hind quarters and back straps had been removed, but the rest of the animal
was left to waste.
Anyone who reports information that leads to a conviction in the case is eligible
for a reward of up to $1,000 by calling Langel at 406-860-7805 or anonymously
to FWP’s 24-hour crime-reporting line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (800-847-6668).
The 1-800-TIP-MONT program is a toll-free number where people can report
violations of fish, wildlife or park regulations. Callers may remain anonymous. It
is similar to the well-known Crimestoppers program and offers rewards for
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks
information resulting in conviction of persons who abuse Montana’s natural,
historic or cultural resources.
