ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A group of endangered Whooping Cranes is getting ready to pass through southwest Georgia. After one was shot and killed in Indiana wildlife officials warn you to keep your distance.
The crane was last seen alive November 28th by an International Crane Foundation staff member about 30 miles north of Terre Haute. The bird and its mate were among 19 whooping cranes migrating from Wisconsin to Florida. The 7-year old mother bird was important to the success of the breeding program.
"It was the first bird to actually breed wild, it had hatched three young two were predated early one, but the one that had survived had actually flown back and forth to Florida twice with it and it was just one of our most successful breeding birds,"said Dale Richter, Operation Migration Board Member.
There are only about 500 whooping cranes left in the world. Right now, there are Whooping Cranes in the Valdosta area and Sandhill Cranes on Moultrie Road. The agency is offering a reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the shooting case.
