Senseless Killing And Waste Of Three Elk Near Whitehall

Picture from: FWP

Region 3 game wardens are on the lookout for those responsible for killing three elk late last week in the Hay Canyon area of Ratio Mountain north of Whitehall.

These elk – one cow, one spike bull, and one bull calf – were shot and left to rot. No attempt was made to retrieve the animals.

According to Warden Justin Gibson investigating the incident, this was not a case of a hunter or hunters losing track of wounded animals. All three elk were found lying close to one another (only about 50 yards from the road).

“This is just another senseless slaughter of our wildlife. I now know of at least ten elk that have been killed and purposely left to waste this year in my district alone,” said Warden Gibson. “Any outdoor enthusiast should be outraged hearing of cases like this.”

Anyone with information pertaining to this case, or other cases in which fish and wildlife resources are being stolen from Montanans, is urged to call (800) TIP-MONT and may be eligible for a reward. Individuals may also contact Warden Gibson at (406) 439-4017.
