Two elk carcasses were dumped near Gallatin Gateway over the weekend, and state authorities are asking anyone with information about the incident to turn it over.

Carcasses from a cow and bull elk were found dumped on state land on the south side of Axtell Anceny Road, about 4 miles west of Gallatin Gateway, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

The bull elk’s antlers were cut off, and the animal’s hindquarters and tenderloins were still attached to the carcass, the department wrote in a news release.
