GREAT FALLS - People who are upset after hearing about a moose that was poached in October have chipped in to create a reward to help catch whoever was responsible.
The group has pledged $1,300 to a reward fund to help solve the October case of a cow moose that shot in the Little Belt Mountains south of Great Falls.
The moose was shot and left while her two calves stood nearby.
FWP state game wardens continue to look for information on the case which took place in the early morning of October 25 on private property along Belt Park Road, near Harley Park.
Anyone with information about the poaching incident is asked to call 1.800.TIPMONT.
The privately collected reward fund is in addition to any possible reward available through the TIPMONT program, and informants are kept confidential.
