Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens are seeking information on 21 wasted Canada geese, likely shot in mid-to-late December, that were found on the banks of Brazil Creek just west of Paulo Reservoir, about 10 miles from Glasgow.

Twenty-two geese were found, including one that was completely processed. The other 21 had only the breasts removed. Under Montana regulations, all waterfowl larger than a teal duck need to have at least the breasts and thighs removed.

Warden Chase Sanderson, who discovered the geese, said "They must have cleaned one completely, then determined it was too much work and just breasted out the rest. Even that was done poorly."

Anyone with information about the crime is encouraged to call FWP's 24-hour wildlife tip line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668), or call Warden Sanderson directly at 406-263-0068.

The 1-800-TIP-MONT program is a toll-free number where one can report violations of fish, wildlife or park regulations. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 for providing information that leads to a conviction.
