ANCHORAGE - A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction for those responsible for the killing of caribou in northwest Alaska.
The Humane Society of the United States and its Wildlife Land Trust are offering a $2,500 reward in the case.
More than 60 unharvested caribou carcasses were discovered earlier this month along a 40-mile trail network outside the Inupiat Eskimo villages of Point Hope and Kivalina in northwest Alaska.
Wildlife troopers suspect hunters from the Point Hope and Kivalina areas were responsible, and charges are pending against five suspects.
