A Vancouver-based company has joined with a wildlife-protection group to double a reward for information about a raccoon who was shot with a crossbow.
On May 8, the Vancouver-based organization Fur-Bearers offered a reward of $1,000 for information about an incident involving a person who shot a raccoon with a crossbow bolt in Maple Ridge and left it to die.
According to CTV News, the raccoon was found suffering from its severe injury and had to be euthanized.
Vancouver's Pigeon Patrol, which manufactures and distributes bird and small-animal deterrent products (such as netting, spikes, and sound or laser repellents), announced today (May 15) that it has added an additional $1,000 to the reward, bringing it to a total of $2,000.
Anyone with information about this incident should contact the Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251, or the Conservation Officer Service’s RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277.
