Whitetail buck poached, left to waste in Montana


CASPER, Wyo. — A whitetail buck deer has been found poached in Montana.

“The whitetail buck was likely shot sometime early on Tuesday, Dec. 17,” Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks says. “Only the antlers were taken and the rest left to waste. FWP game wardens say that wildlife crimes like this one are often solved because of leads provided by the public.”

The deer was poached in an area east of Missoula between Rock Creek Road and US Forest Service Grizzly Campground in the Ranch Creek area.
