MAAC receives $400k donation

Posted: Updated:

Great Falls - The Maclean Animal Adoption Center (MAAC) is receiving a very special gift from a Great Falls local. Grace Myers died in 2015, but left behind a legacy by donating $400,000 to the MAAC.

On Thursday, -they recognized her generosity by dedicating the grounds around their facility to her. Animal Foundation of Great Falls President Roxanne Klosse says Myers' donation is already being put to great use.  

 "We would not be able to be in operation and sustain what we're doing today in taking care of animals on a day to day to day basis and adopting over 800 animals since we've opened so that's really exciting to be able to give them state of the art care," said Klose

Klose says the Center is also closer to paying off its $1.7 million with just $900,000 left on their bill.

    If you happen to be out hunting this weekend, there's one thing you should be cautious about. It's called Chronic Wasting Disease. According to Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks, it's a contagious fatal neurological disease that infects deer, elk, and moose. If you signs of sick-looking deer, elk, or moose, FWP asks you to report it to them.  If you harvest one in a priority surveillance area, stop at the checkpoint to have your animal sampled.  There is no evidence eating...

    KFBB is receiving reports that a presidential plane has landed in Great Falls at the Montana Air National Guard. It is unclear what exactly the plane is doing at MANG, although it is suspected the plane could be apart of the President's fleet and there wasn't room at the Missoula International Airport for the entire fleet to land.  Our Ricky Blackburn is currently on the scene at the airport, and is working to bring us more information as it becomes available.
