DNR: Reward offered in poaching crime


MADISON (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin game organization is offering a $500 reward for a tip that leads to a conviction in a bear poaching case in St. Croix County.

According to the Department of Natural Resources, someone killed the bear while it was hibernating in a culvert near Star Prairie in February. The bear was dragged from the culvert to another location and decapitated.

The bear's body was found in the Town of Somerset.

If you have tips, you should talk to the DNR.

Wardens say the bear was 250 to 300 pounds, so it's likely more than one person was involved in the crime.
