DELAVAN, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities say a cash reward for information in the death of a snapping turtle has increased.

The reward, offered by Global Conservation in Watertown, is now over $10,000.

Authorities believe someone beat a female snapping turtle at a Delavan golf course on June 10. It later died at a rehabilitation center for wildlife.

The Walworth County Sheriff’s office say they are following leads and hope someone will provide the information they need to make an arrest.
