The Fur-Bearers want justice for a beaver impaled by multiple arrows last week in West Kelowna.
The B.C. non-profit group has offered a $1,200 reward for information leading to the identification and conviction of the person responsible for shooting the beaver, which was seen swimming in the area of the West Kelowna Yacht Club.
“It is extremely unsettling that someone would shoot a beaver with multiple arrows like this,” said Fur-Bearers director of communications Adrian Nelson.
“The government investigators say that the beaver was likely enduring extreme pain. We are certain that someone is aware of who is responsible for this act and plead with residents who may have information to contact investigators,” Nelson added.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Report All Poachers and Polluters Program (RAPP) at 1-877-952-RAPP (7277).
