Florida dolphin killings: NOAA offers $20k reward

FORT MYERS, Fla. – After the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission recovered a dead dolphin last week near Naples that was shot in the head with a gun or spear, a $20,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to civil penalties or a criminal arrest.

FWC recovered another dolphin last week off the Panhandle that had been shot in the side. Last year, a dolphin was also found shot off Captiva. 

The reward is being offered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

“These cases can rarely be solved without the public, people coming forward and saying they might have seen something and we can follow up on that,” said Tracy Dunn, assistant director of NOAA’s Southeast law enforcement division.

Bottlenose dolphins are one of the most popular animals roaming the coast of the Sunshine State, and they’re popular with tourist and residents alike.
