Culprits Identified in Mule Deer Killings
October 25, 2017
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 6 game wardens declare that due to good people coming forward with good information, the individuals responsible for the multiple mule deer killed in northern McCone Co. last week have been identified and interviewed.
Region 6 wardens would like to thank the public for their phone calls, comments, and Facebook shares, and would also like to thank media outlets for helping to spread the word.
Wardens are now working with the McCone Co. attorney, and charges are pending. The case will then go in front of the McCone Co. Court.
“Our job is not to prosecute the case, our job is to present the evidence and details of fish and wildlife crimes to the proper county attorney for prosecution,” said Region 6 warden captain Ron Howell. “Ultimately, it will be up to the McCone Co. Justice Court to determine the outcome.”
Warden Todd Tryan appreciates the calls and other information that came in, and he is currently working with the TIP-MONT program to determine reward possibilities for individuals that came forward with key information.
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.
