Investigators are trying to find out how two tundra swans ended up dead in southern Warren County this month and have offered a $1,000 reward in the case.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources believe the swans were killed by a hunter around Dec. 7 or 8, probably in a small lake or pond near the Warren, Simpson and Logan counties area.
A bird watcher found the swans in a ditch on Dec. 9.
Tundra swans are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
