Montana officials seek to revoke wildlife company’s permit

A Montana wildlife casting agency where an employee was fatally mauled three years ago is facing the loss of its permit because of violations that include instructing a member of the public to approach a tiger during a photo shoot in Detroit.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokeswoman Andrea Jones said Monday the state is moving to shut down Animals of Montana, which also rents trained bears, wolves and other captive-born wildlife for photography shoots and motion pictures.

The company took animals away from its property without the authorization of FWP at least three times this year, Jones said. Agency officials said a November inspection turned up numerous animal cages that were not padlocked, some that were too small and some that had no roof protection. An inspector also found some cages without water and some that appeared to not have been cleaned for days, the agency said.
