Conservation Groups Offer Additional $4,800 Reward for Lynx-Poaching Information

The Colorado Division of Wildlife reported that a radio-collared Canada lynx was poached near Silverton–likely with a bow and arrow, according to the Durango Herald. The State offered a reward.

To step up the enticement, a coalition of conservation groups, including WildEarth Guardians announced yesterday it would offer an additional $4,800 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for poaching Colorado’s endangered wildcat.

This was a cowardly, stupid, and wasteful act that follows on the heels of several other lynx-poaching incidents in Colorado over the past several years.  Shame on the poachers!  If you’ve got the scoop, please tip off Operation Game Thief  at 1-877-265-6648 and get yourself some bucks  for a righteous deed.
