PHOENIX FOUND

Skiers, snowmobilers, snowshoers and others traveling across the Storm Castle Bridge during the holidays might have glimpsed a small sign alerting the world to the disappearance of a nine-year-old husky named Phoenix. 

Possible scene of the crime—Flying D Equine Manager Greg Pole casts a shadow as he snaps pictures of where he believes MJ the horse was shot, just off West Williams Road in Gallatin Gateway. The Montana Attorney General’s office said, depending on how the facts come together in MJ’s case, a person suspected of killing a “commonly domesticated hoofed animal” could be fined $50,000 and sent to prison for as many as 10 years.
