Missoula, MT -( Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking information on the wasting of two deer near Glasgow.

FWP Warden Todd Tryan said the deer, a mule deer and whitetail, were found in a ditch near the Willow Creek Block Management Area just south of Glasgow on Britzman road. The deer’s heads were removed, they were skinned, and the only meat taken was one back strap off of the mule deer. The deer were covered in mold and showed other signs of decomposition. They are a complete waste.

“These deer were probably harvested during the fall hunting season and were left hanging in a garage,” Tryan said. “The person or persons responsible never removed the meat from these deer, and they went to waste. On top of that, they then decided to dump them near a road right in from of a Block Management sign-in box. If a hunter does not want the meat from a harvested animal, they need to donate it to programs such as Hunters against Hunger.”

Anyone with information about the crime is encouraged to call Warden Tryan directly at 406-263-0067 or FWP’s 24-hour wildlife tip line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668).

The 1-800-TIP-MONT program is a toll-free number where one can report violations of fish, wildlife or park regulations. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 for providing information that leads to a conviction.

I live in Baltimore County Maryland along the Harford County line in a park area. Walking the dogs over the years, we have uncovered dozens of whitetail carcases in one ravine and another drop of the road 200 yards away, that had only the hind quarter hastily carved out. I tried to report it several times to the ‘park service’ and met with an investigation that stated that: the county did not make it convenient for people to rid deer carcases… and they would not address the fact that 70% was left to rot and that they had to have… Read more »
