Reward Offered For Info On Javelina Killing In Tucson


The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering a reward for information in the stoning death of a javelina in Tucson last week.

Authorities say the animal was found dead Friday at Tanque Verde Elementary School and had been killed overnight.

Arizona Game and Fish officials say the javelina's remains were surrounded by landscaping rocks covered with blood in the school’s courtyard. They say the javelina died from blunt-force trauma, and other evidence was found at the scene.

Game and Fish officials say the department's Operation Game Thief program is offering a reward of up to $1,500 for information leading to the arrest of those involved in the killing.
