The Board of Directors of the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep's (FNAWS) Montana Chapter has donated $1,000 to Fish, Wildlife & Parks' Turn In Poachers (TIP-MONT) program to be used in paying rewards to persons providing information leading to arrests and convictions in cases regarding the illegal killing of bighorn sheep in Montana.

Doug Dreeszen, president of the Montana Chapter of FNAWS, said the organization is "happy to be involved in the TIP-MONT program and sincerely hope our involvement will help curb future bighorn sheep poaching in Montana."

Those with information on any suspected illegal killing of wildlife are asked to call FWP's toll-free TIP-Mont hotline (800-TIP-MONT; 800-847-6668). Callers can remain anonymous and still receive a reward.
