The Colorado Division of Wildlife is offering a reward for information on the second lynx killing in a week. A lynx was found Nov. 1 near a road north of Silverton. It had been killed by a shotgun blast.
The cat, captured in Canada as part of the DOW’s lynx reintroduction effort, was released in southwest Colorado in 2005. Another lynx was found, shot twice by a rifle, Nov. 2 north of Durango. Anyone with information about either shooting should call Operation Game Thief at 1-877-265-6648. Information can be given anonymously. The DOW is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to an arrest in any of these cases. For more news about Division of Wildlife go to: http://wildlife.state.co.us/
