BILLINGS, Mont. – The game of runs ended in favor of Montana State Billings after a hot start by the No. 23 Lewis-Clark State Women’s Basketball team. The Warriors came out swinging with a 23-6 first quarter, but a resilient MSUB team battled back to take the contest by a final of 77-69.

“You have to give MSUB a ton of credit,” Head Coach Brian Orr said. “The last three quarters, they were the better team on both ends of the court. We had no answer for (MSUB’s Taryn) Shelley, and their guards shot lights outs, especially in the fourth quarter.”

A mature mountain goat, suffering from at least three crossbow-related wounds was euthanized by Fish and Game conservation officers earlier this week.

Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) is offering a reward for information in the case and callers can remain anonymous. Contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999 twenty four hours a day.

Reports of the injured female (nanny) goat came to Fish and Game via the CAP hotline and Facebook; an accurate description helped officers quickly locate the goat just off Hells Canyon Road, south of Hells Canyon Dam. After watching the nanny for more than an hour, the officers determined that the animal was suffering and needed to be euthanized.
