HOMEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - A $15,000 reward is being offered for information leading to a conviction in the shooting death of a black bear at Lake Tahoe.

The Tahoe-based BEAR League, Humane Society of the United States and many individuals donated money for the reward in hopes it will lead to more information.

Many Tahoe residents expressed outrage after the bear named Sunny was found dead July 30 on a beach at Homewood on the lake's west shore.

They're pressing the California Department of Fish and Game for a full-scale investigation.

Fish and game spokesman Patrick Foy told the Tahoe Daily Tribune ( ) that the agency is doing all it can, but can't pursue charges without hard evidence.

Foy says a person of interest refuses to speak with investigators at his lawyer's urging.
