Game and Fish says javelina was unlawfully killed in Tucson

Posted

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to an arrest in the unlawful killing of a javelina in Tucson.

The javelina was found suspended by its hind legs with a rope tied to a tree branch on Tucson’s east side last Sunday.

Game and Fish officials said the javelina died after being shot multiple times.

They said the killing may have occurred on either Jan. 13 or 14.

Regional Supervisor Raul Vega of the Game and Fish Department in Tucson said the killing “was the act of a criminal” and the javelina’s multiple injuries suggest the death was intentional.

Javelinas are usually found in central and southern Arizona, according to authorities.
