Vandals Destroy $300 Easement Sign, Authorities Seeking Information
Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks is looking for anyone who might have information about vandalism caused at the Bolin Ranch Conservation Easement near Stevensville.
"The sign there at the parking area was shot repeatedly and this is the second time that has happened in the past 18 months or so," said FWP spokeswoman Vivica Crowser. "Each time we go to replace that sign it's about $300, so we're looking for tips from the community that might lead us to some information about who's responsible in this case."
Crowser said that on top of the financial costs, incidents like this make it more difficult to arrange for public access easements on private land. Anyone with information is advised to call 1-800-TIP-MONT.
