Rewards increase for information on southwest Montana poaching cases

More money is available in exchange for information on two separate February poaching cases in southwest Montana.


Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks announced Monday that donors boosted the cash available for information about poached elk and pronghorn in the Paradise Valley and several trumpeter swans that were shot and killed on Central Park Pond near Manhattan.


FWP said in a news release that an anonymous donor has put up $5,000 to increase the reward for information about the killing of nine pronghorn and three elk. The elk were shot from a road and abandoned about 17 miles south of Livingston. FWP believes the animals were killed around Feb. 13.
