As Montana Women Vanish, State Focusing Efforts on Investigating Dead Wolf

Even the New York Times pointed out in January that there is an epidemic of vanishing children, teens, and women from Montana’s Indian Reservations. Selina Not Afraid, a 16-year-old member of the Crow Tribe, disappeared on New Years Day and her body was found not long after. Ashley HeavyRunner Loring, a 20-year-old member of the Blackfeet Nation, disappeared in 2017. Montana’s Missing Indigenous Persons Task Force is busy trying to track the many missing Indigenous residents of the state, who make us 6% of the population but a whopping 27% of missing persons.

While female members of our state-wide community are in great peril, the State of Montana and the Federal Government are spending time and resources investigating the death of a wolf in Madison County, treating it as a top-tier criminal investigation with almost unlimited funds and resources to try to find the culprit.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are investigating the dead wolf that happened last October on a Madison ranch. FWP spokesperson Morgan Jacobsen confirmed an investigation in ongoing these many months later.

The Sun Ranch, near the town of Cameron, is owned by Richard Adkerson, who is the CEO of a multinational mining company. The ranch is managed by his son, Clark Adkerson.

It appears from reports that a dead cow was found by hand on the ranch, which was reportedly put down for being sick. That cow as being eaten by a grizzly bear and three cubs. It appears that someone poisoned the cow so as to dispatch the bears. As a consequence, it appears that the cow also attracted at least one wolf, which parts of the cow and subsequently died. The hand’s dog also died after eating part of the carcass, supporting the theory that the cow had been poisoned.

While killing wolves that harm livestock is permitted up to 100, poison is not permitted and neither is the killing of grizzly bears, which are protected under the Endangered Species Act.

A partnership between the state and the federal government is now investigating the situation with the full resources of law enforcement. Meanwhile, there are dozens of still-missing children, teens, and women in the Big Sky state whose investigations remain closed or stalled.

  1. Whoever wrote this needs to take some classes on grammar, sentence structure, and learn how to compare two topics. Literally done of the most pathetic writing I’ve read in sometime. How freaking difficult is it to simply state:

    Currently, there are unprecedented amounts of money pouring into the investigation of the death of a grizzly bear, her three cubs, and one wolf, however Tribal Police and other State agencies lack the funding to muster the resources to help the missing persons epidemic throughout the state of Montana.

    Seriously 🤦🏻‍♂️. I completely support what the author was trying to say but good grief 🙄

  2. Missing Montana people should be a priority in our State. Our family member Calvin Zimdars, was last seen at his home in Glen, MT on 11/29/17.
