Treasure is said to be hidden in the Rockies, and people are getting hurt looking for it  1 Month ago

A purported treasure chest full of gold, jewelry and other valuables worth $2 million has caused many to flock to the Rocky Mountains to try to claim its riches.

The hunt has proved deadly over the years, and a man was injured this week searching for the prize, which prompted a sheriff's department to warn about the hunt.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office in Montana said a man was hurt near Yellowstone National Park looking for the Forrest Fenn treasure. 

"You must know that this country is unforgiving if you don’t give it the respect it deserves," Sheriff Brian Gootkin said in the statement. "We encourage everyone to vigorously pursue their outdoor passions, but think like a local. Before you go after the treasure, consider your level of skill, preparation and knowledge of the area."

The sheriff's office said that in recent years, at least two people have died, two have been rescued near death and others have had run-ins with police as they searched for the treasure near Yellowstone.

The office told all wannabe treasure hunters to give someone their exact location before going out, to be prepared for changing weather and wildlife encounters and to plan for the lack of cellphone service in some areas.

Art dealer and author Forrest Fenn sparked a sense of adventure in many when he announced years ago that he had hidden the treasure chest somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. The treasure is said to be hidden north of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and many have deciphered clues from Fenn's writing and shared tips online.

In 2017, New Mexico state police pleaded with Fenn to reveal the location of the chest after a Colorado pastor died looking for it.
