MT - Two men arrested in shooting deaths of antelope

Two men arrested in shooting deaths of antelope

HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- Two men were arrested Thursday for their alleged role in the shooting deaths of 10 antelope near Canyon Ferry Reservoir.

Ryon Bullock, 19, and Chase Parker, 18, each face a felony charge of unlawful possession, shipping or transporting of game animals, as well as four misdemeanor counts associated with the crime.

Dave Loewen, a game warden for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, said he received a call from a biologist Feb. 7 asking if he had heard anything about some freshly killed antelope in district 390, where the hunting season ended in November. He found two bucks and eight does lying dead in the snow.

"I've seen people shoot one or two out of their truck and leave it by the road, but this was the first time I saw 10 animals lying together like that," Loewen said. "It looked like someone mowed 'em down."

Bullock and Parker are scheduled to appear in district court in Broadwater County on Friday.

Along with the felony count, the men are charged with hunting during a closed season, waste of game, and hunting with the use of artificial light. Parker also is charged with shooting from the roadway, and Bullock is charged with hunting from a vehicle.
