BOZEMAN -

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is warning you not to let your dogs chase wildlife.

FWP officials responded to a dog chasing a cow elk in a southeast Bozeman subdivision.  The unleashed dog chased the elk for about 2 ½ hours ignoring calls from its owner.

FWP warns similar incidents put wildlife in danger, especially dogs. They said dogs can kill larger animals from the stress of the chase.

The dog's owner was cited for allowing a dog to harass animals and could face up to a $1000 fine.
