MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A reward is being offered leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for fatally shooting a baby goat in Morgantown.

The Humane Society of the United States announced the $5,000 reward Friday.

The Humane Society says the goat was shot in the head Tuesday.

State police in Morgantown are investigating the incident.

The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1HjOdlh ) reports the goat belonged to 12-year-old Gavin Nelson. A neighbor discovered the animal after it was shot.

According to West Virginia Humane Society Executive Director Heather Severt, the goat was shot with a .22-caliber gun at close range. She says the goat was too small to be a threat.
