Second Reward Offered For Information In Case Of Loon Shootings

Steve Wall

Initial coverage by Sam Evans-Brown here.

 A second reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in two recent loon shootings in New Hampshire.

The reward is being offered through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. An initial reward of $5,000 was offered by The Humane Society of the United States and The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust.

The loons were found with bullet wounds last month 50 miles apart in Dover and Moultonborough. Both died.

The loon is protected by both state and federal law, and is a threatened species in the state. It's a misdemeanor to injure or shoot a loon.

Anyone with information on the shootings is asked to contact Special Agent Robert Rothe of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Concord at 223-2541.
