There is now a $15,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever is responsible for the shooting of 2 endangered whooping cranes this month, killing one of them.

Zoos from Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts and Operation Migration have all put up money for the $15,000 reward.

The 2 Whooping cranes were shot Feb. 7 at a crawfish pond near Roanoke in Jefferson Davis Parish. Apparently they were a mated pair.

Just how rare are Whooping Cranes? There are only about 600 of the birds alive, which is why this case is so serious.

Tips can be called to 1-800-442-2511 or texted to tip411, either with a free “LADWF Tips” app or by texting LADWF and their tip to 847411.
