ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a suspect after the discovery of a decapitated wild turkey and destruction of several duck eggs near a New Mexico bird sanctuary.

The Roswell Daily Record reports a reward is being offered for any information about the turkey’s decapitation and destruction of duck eggs around the J. Kenneth Smith Bird Sanctuary & Nature Center in Roswell.


Roswell Parks & Recreation Director Jim Burress says the carcass of the wild turkey was found last week on a walking trail at the sanctuary with its head cut off. He says employees also found several duck eggs by a nearby pond that were broken.

Burress says the culprit could have been work of an animal such as a raccoon, skunk, or fox, but officials suspect a human because of recent vandalism.



Burress says Parks and Recreation personnel and police are increasing their presence in the area.

Resident and frequent sanctuary visitor Nita Sturges says she’s offering a $500 reward out of anger.

No arrests have been made.
