There’s a $15K reward for information in the shooting death of a Tulare County condor

Crime

A $15,000 reward is now being offered for information on a shooting and killing of an endangered California condor in Tulare County in May.

On Thursday, the Center for Biological Diversity tripled the reward from its original $5,000 reward offered by U.S. Fish and Wildlife.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials continue investigating, looking for whoever was responsible for the condor’s death. 

The endangered bird was found dead on private property south of Hot Springs Road and east Old Stage Coach Road in Tulare County sometime in May.

A second condor was found dead in Kern County in July.

Condors are protected under state law and the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

Anyone with information on the condor’s killing is asked to contact the agency’s Office of Law Enforcement at 916-569-8476.
