CASPER, Wyoming – Montana’s Fish, Wildlife & ParksGuards are investigating a felony trespass and shootout case in which “a Red Angus cow-calf pair … was shot and killed by several arrows” at a cattle ranch near Lennep, MT.
The trespassing and illegal shooting occurred approximately between September 20 and 23, according to the Montana FWP. The cattle ranch is in the Whetstone Ridge area of the Castle Mountains and close to United States Forest Service lands.
“I hope someone provides some information so that we can make sure this doesn’t happen again,” said FWP Game Ranger Sgt. Kyle Andersen. “These ranchers are hard working people who allow free public hunting, and it is a shame that the actions of the criminals who did this unfairly distort the hunters as a whole.”
