BOB MARSHALL WILDERNESS- Agents with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are hoping a public tip can help them track down whoever is responsible for poisoning several eagles and wolves in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area.
Wildlife officials said the four wolves and six eagles were found in the vicinity of the Big Prairie Ranger Station in May. Recent lab results have now confirmed that the wolves and eagles were all poisoned.
The agency is offering a $2500 reward for information that leads to the conviction of whoever did the poisoning. You can call the wildlife crime Hotline at 800 -TIP-MONT (847-6668).
