A reward of $10,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the killing of a grizzly bear last fall in Bonner County.
The radio-collared grizzly was found dead in the Grouse Creek drainage in October. It is a violation of the Endangered Species Act to kill a grizzly, which is protected as a threatened population. The Idaho Fish and Game Department and the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service investigated the killing.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust are offering an additional $5,000 for information leading to a conviction.
To report information about the crime, call the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at (509) 370-0112, or Idaho Fish and Game Department at (208) 267-4085. Callers may remain anonymous.
