A radio frequency bobcat was found dead at a Tucson research project

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) – A $1,150 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the killing of a radio-collared bobcat that was part of a Tucson research project, authorities said.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department said the bobcat was found dead on Sept. 28.

The research project, funded in part by a state Game and Fish grant, will study how bobcats use the wild-urban interface on Tucson’s west side, officials said.

Department officials said the maximum penalty for illegal wildlife killing is four months in prison, and a $750 fine and civil penalties can also apply.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department manages over 800 species of wildlife.
