FWP seeks information on vandalism at Blacktail WMA

Tuesday May. 7th, 2019


Game wardens with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks are seeking information on property that was vandalized at Blacktail Wildlife Management Area.

Sometime between 3:30 p.m. on May 3 and 9:30 a.m. on May 6, the main entrance gate at the WMA was pushed in by a vehicle, bending the gate and breaking the lock box. Vandals also pushed over a large WMA sign at the entrance. Replacing the gate and making other needed repairs could cost about $1,500.

Blacktail WMA is about 30 miles along Blacktail Road, southeast of Dillon. Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation personnel discovered the vandalism when they returned Monday morning to continue work on the bridge near the WMA entrance, then notified FWP.

Those with information that may help solve this vandalism case are asked to contact Dillon warden Kerry Wahl at 406-490-0956 or 1-800-TIP-MONT (847-6668). Callers can remain anonymous.
