BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Information about the shooting of two endangered whooping cranes in Jefferson Davis Parish could be worth $20,000.

The Advocate reports the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced the new reward Monday, pushing it up from the $15,000 offered last month for a tip leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.

Wildlife and Fisheries spokesman Adam Einck says two endangered whooping cranes were found shot on Feb. 7 in Jefferson Davis Parish near Compton and Radio Tower Roads north of Roanoke.

He says one of the birds was dead when discovered.

The other crane initially survived but later died at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, where it had been taken for treatment.
