The death of a female black bear has prompted two wildlife groups to offer at $3,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who illegally killed the bear in the East Walker River area.
Earlier this summer, the radio-collared bear was shot and killed, sometime around the weekend of July 18-19 near the Flying M Ranch. She was killed prior to the opening of bear season in Nevada.
NoBearHuntNV and Nevadans for Responsible Wildlife Management have posted the reward and its payout will be handled through the Nevada Department of Wildlife’s Operation Game Thief program. To report details of the killing of this bear, please contact Operation Game Thief at 1-800-992-3030. Reporting parties are kept confidential.
