Reward Offered For Information About Grizzly Bear Shooting On The Gallatin National Forest

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is investigating the shooting of a grizzly bear discovered by hikers over Memorial Day weekend on the Gallatin National Forest. Anyone with information may receive a reward up to $1,000.

Grizzly bears are listed as threatened in the lower 48 states pursuant to the Endangered Species Act. The shooting and/or possession of any unlawfully harvested grizzly bears, including parts thereof, are considered a violation of this act.

A Grizzly was discovered by hikers over Memorial Day weekend in the vicinity of Cache Creek Road/Taylor Fork Road, just north of the Yellowstone National Park boundary on highway 191, and south of Big Sky, MT. This area is frequented by outdoor recreationists and hunters alike, and according to reports, experienced heavy traffic over the holiday weekend. As a result, someone recreating in the area may have relevant information that could aid investigators.

Anyone with any information regarding the shooting is asked to contact the USFWS Office of Law Enforcement in Billings at 406-247-7355. The Service will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. Anyone providing that information to authorities may remain anonymous. Information can also be reported to the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks TIP-MONT line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (800-847-6668).
