Officials search for suspect who killed protected falcon
SALEM, N.H. (AP) — Authorities in New Hampshire are offering a $1,000 reward for information on the killing of a federally protected falcon.
The Eagle Tribune reports the peregrine falcon was shot and killed in Salem on May 5. Officials say the bird was hatched at Brady Sullivan Tower in 2012 and had been tracked under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
New Hampshire Operation Game Thief Vice Chairman David Bryant says conservation officers haven’t found any leads since opening the investigation.
Officials have created a GoFundMe campaign so the public can add money to the reward.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-800-344-4262 or file a report online at nhogt.org.
