Why is the Clearwater Junction Cow Missing?

Montana is a great state for road trips. Not only is the scenery so amazing everywhere you look. But, each community you pass thru, regardless of size, has it's quirks. Take a place like Clearwater Junction for example. Nearly all of us have driven by the iconic "MTCow" on Highway 200. It is probably one of the most recognizable roadside landmarks in Montana. If fact, it even made an appearance in the 2018 blockbuster video game Far Cry 5.

Superior resident lends helping hand to hummingbird

Back in early May, Superior resident Kathryn Verley did something unusual that not many people can say they’d done. She saved and revived a tiny hummingbird that flew into her garage and got trapped.

Report snapping turtles in west-central Montana

Missoula – Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) is asking for help from the public in reporting snapping turtle sightings in west-central Montana. In Montana, snapping turtles are a native species east of the continental divide, but they are non-native west of the divide and can cause significant harm to native populations of pond- dwelling species like frogs, turtles, snakes, ducks, and fish. Snapping turtles likely end up in waterways in western Montana through illegal releases of animals kept as pets.

Eating Wolf Meat: BHA Annual Rendezvous Never Ceases to Surprise

Eating a wild canid might actually be for the faint of heart. Or so it went at the annual conservation event in Missoula, Montana.

Letter to the editor: Must speak up against trapping

We must speak up against trapping. There's a Fish and Wildlife Commission Zoom meeting June 24 (fwp.mt.gov). Montana's wolf slaughter really takes off in the fall. But not just wolves will die. Non-targeted species and pets on public lands will suffer and die. Imagine your dog in a trap, screaming in pain while you frantically try to save her, only to watch her die. Trapped wild animals scream, too; but there is no one to hear.
