The US Fish and Wildlife Service, in conjunction with the US Forest Service and Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, is investigating the deaths of four wolves and six eagles in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area in Montana. The wolves and eagles were found in the vicinity of the Big Prairie Ranger Station in early May of this year. Recent lab results have confirmed that the wolves and eagles died as a result of poisoning.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to the conviction of the person(s) responsible for the death of the wolves and eagles.

To provide information, contact Rick Branzell, Special Agent, US Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Law Enforcement, in Missoula, MT, at (406) 329-3000 or call the State of Montana's wildlife crime Hotline at (800 )-TIP-MONT (847-6668).

The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. For more information on their work and the people who make it happen, visit
