TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - State officials are offering a reward for information about the killing of another Cooper’s hawk in the Tucson area.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department says this is the second Cooper’s hawk to be killed in September.

The first bird was discovered on Sept. 7 and appeared to have killed by an over five-inch dart shot from a blow gun. The second was found on Wednesday at a far east Tucson park. Authorities believe that one was killed with a pellet or BB gun.

It is illegal to kill a Cooper’s hawk.

Game and Fish is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to an arrest in the latest incident and $700 for the one from earlier in September.
