Montana Hunters Asked to Report Dead or Dying Deer  September21, 2010 - 

Scattered reports of white-tailed deer being found dead in recent weeks in parts of Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks Region 6 ...

“Folks who are out in the field and notice deer that have recently died from unknown causes are asked to call our office in Glasgow at (406) 228-3700 to report the number of animals and the exact location,” said Region 6 Wildlife Program Manager Mark Sullivan.

There doesn’t appear to be reason for alarm, but we are seeing a few deer dying rather suspiciously. With help from the public, we hope to determine the extent of the incidents. It may not be widespread at all.”
