Reward on shot Javelina found at Saguaro Park W

Javelina in Saguaro National Park west, Tucson Mountains.

TUCSON -- The Arizona Game and Fish Department's Operation Game Thief is offering a reward for up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in connection with the discovery of two dead javelinas, one of which was shot.

Authorities say they found the animals Monday afternoon at Saguaro National Park-West, southeast of West Rudasil Rd., and N. Noel Ln.

One of the javelinas had been shot twice in the head.

Authorities say the shooting may have occurred elsewhere, with the carcasses being dumped there afterward.

Those with information about the circumstances surrounding the shooting are urged to contact AZFGD at 1-800-352-0700. - adapted from AZGFD & KVOA
