Defenders of Wildlife, a national non-profit conservation organization, and the Indiana Turn in a Poacher or a Polluter Program are each donating $2,500 to the reward for information that leads to an arrest. The total reward is now $7,500.
Wildlife law enforcement agents with the FWS and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources are investigating the shooting of the crane, which happened sometime between Saturday, November 28, and Tuesday, December 1.
