Reward offered in deaths of 2 bighorn sheep

APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) - Wildlife officials and preservationists are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading those responsible for illegally killing two bighorn sheep in a rugged area northeast of Apache Junction.

The two animals were killed last month on the southern shore of Canyon Lake. The hunter or hunters were believed to have gotten to the area by boat.

The head and horns from one sheep were taken away, while the rest of the body was left at the scene. The second sheep was located 100 yards away and didn't have any of its body parts removed.

Given that the carcasses were found close together, officials believe the animals were killed by the same hunter or hunters.
