WISDOM – Game wardens with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks are seeking information on a wolverine that was reportedly shot illegally this month in southwest Montana.

Wardens received a report on Nov. 10 of a wolverine carcass found on U.S. Forest Service Road 7377 near Schultz Saddle and the Continental Divide, northwest of Wisdom, according to an FWP media release. A game warden located the carcass and confirmed the animal had been shot, skinned and abandoned.

Wolverine harvest is not legal currently in Montana.

Anyone with information about the illegal harvest can visit to provide details or call the FWP violation reporting hot line at 1-800-TIP-MONT. Informants may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
