'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information about the shooting of a bald eagle.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission said that on May 10 an injured bald eagle was found in the area of Lincoln and Sharpe roads in the township, just west of Altoona.

The bird later died at a state veterinary laboratory in State College as a result of at least one gunshot wound.

Bald eagles, classified as a threatened species, are protected by state and federal law, making it illegal to harm one.

The reward is being offered for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the shooting.

The Humane Society of the United States and The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust are offering the reward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the game commission's regional office at 724-238-9523 or a hotline number at 1-888-742-8001.
