INDIAN SHORES, Fla. (AP) - A reward of more than $4,000 is being
offered for information about who killed a bald eagle in Pinellas
County.

Barbara Walker of the Clearwater Audubon Society, said the male
eagle, which died of a blood infection Tuesday, was shot with a
pellet or bullet.

Walker said the reward for information that would lead to the
arrest and conviction of whoever shot the bird had already reached
$4,150 and was still growing.

A spokeswoman for the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary said the
nonprofit organization has already received some tips about the
shooting.
