Conservation & Preservation


— An adult whooping crane that spent the winter in Texas was shot in a South Dakota cornfield before it could reach the endangered birds' breeding grounds in Canada, federal wildlife officials said.

The Whooping Crane Conservation Association is offering up to $10,000 for information that leads to the conviction of the shooter. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service also offered a reward.
