Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks

MALTA, Mont. --(Ammoland.com)- Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens charged two juveniles this week in a cow moose poaching case that occurred last month northeast of Avon.

Game warden Joe Kambic, lead investigator for the case, found the moose dead near Carpenter and Ophir Creeks on Feb. 19 2013.

The moose showed evidence of multiple small caliber gunshot wounds and was left to waste.

FWP Chief of Enforcement, Jim Kropp, said that the incident generated a lot of interest and prompted public donations that increased the reward potential for tips leading to a conviction in the case.

“In the end, it was not tips from the public that made this case, but often times it is,” Kropp says, “We rely on information reported through the state’s 1800-TIP-MONT wildlife crime reporting hotline to help in our investigations.”
