Dauphin Island, Ala (WKRG) - The Federal government wants to know who killed baby birds on Dauphin Island. Now they're offering a $2500 reward. Al.com reports the reward is offered to anyone who can identify the person or persons who removed the Least Tern eggs last weekend.
The eggs were destroyed or removed last weekend during a volleyball tournament on the beach. The nesting areas were located right where the sand courts were constructed. The online publication called it a "massacre". Subsequent publications picked up the story and it garnered international "outrage."
According to the federal migratory bird treaty act, "it is illegal to remove eggs from the nest of a bird covered by the act."
