Conservation officers: Protected birds’ injuries indicate human involvement

Two protected birds have been found dead in Jennings County, and state conservation officers need the public’s help in investigating the deaths.

Officers received two separate calls Tuesday about birds that were found dead, Conservation Officer Zach Walker said.

Officers responded to a report along County Road 500S in the area of the Weston bottoms and found a dead sandhill crane, a bird that’s become popular with bird watchers in the region as they migrate north and south.
