BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) - A reward offered in the shooting that led to the death of a bald eagle in a park has been increased to $7,500.

The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust announced Tuesday that the organizations are offering $5,000 for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for shooting a bald eagle in Bridgeton on May 20.

This reward adds to the $2,500 reward already being offered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.

The Humane Society says the bald eagle was found seriously injured and appeared to have been shot. It was eventually euthanized due to the extent of its injuries.
