More moolah for murdered lynx

The reward for information on who killed two lynx this fall near Durango has risen to $10,000 with a pledge of $2,500 by the Denver-based Animal Assistance Foundation.

After the lynx were found dead in separate incidents the Division of Wildlife offered $500 for information about the poachers. Several other conservation organizations followed immediately with their own pledges for reward money including Sinapu, Humane Society of the United States, Defenders of Wildlife, National Wildlife Federation, Center for Native Ecosystems, San Juan Citizens Alliance, Colorado Wild, Southern Rockies Ecosystem Project, and Wilderness Workshop.

But still no leads.

That doesn't mean the trail's gone cold. The DOW often gets tips months after an incident.

And $10,000 might be pretty hard to resist.
