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.
Information in the case can be given to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Special Agent Bob Snow at (502) 582-5989, ext. 29, or to state Fish and Wildlife Resources dispatch at (800) 252-5378.
