Wildlife group increases reward in case of injured pelicans

From the Associated Press:

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — A wildlife group has increased its reward for information about 11 pelicans found with intentionally broken wings on a stretch of Southern California’s Bolsa Chica State Beach.

The Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach said this week that it was boosting its reward for information that leads to a conviction in the case from $5,000 to $20,000 after other groups added contributions. The birds washed into shore earlier this month with their wings snapped so that their bones were exposed. Only one pelican survived. The female bird is recovering at the center.
