Reward offered for information about dead pelicans


September 13, 2019

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is offering a reward of as much as $1,000 for information leading to the conviction of people who have shot and killed pelicans – possibly dozens of them – along the Bighorn River below Yellowtail Dam.

It is illegal to shoot pelicans – which also are a federally protected migratory bird – in Montana.

FWP game wardens have seen or retrieved nearly a dozen dead pelicans in the world-class blue-ribbon trout water between the dam and Two Leggins Fishing Access Site. They believe dozens more may have been shot and killed this summer in the same area.
