Reward offered in grizzly killing

Associated Press

PRIEST RIVER, Idaho – The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the illegal killing of a grizzly bear near here.

The bear’s remains were found by employees of the Idaho Department of Lands over the weekend while they were working near the middle fork of the East River just north of Priest River.

Grizzly bears are listed as threatened under provisions of the federal Endangered Species Act and are protected by Idaho statutes.

To report information about poaching, tipsters can call in anonymously to the Citizens Against Poaching hotline at (800) 632-5999.
