SEATTLE (AP) -- A $10,000 reward has been offered for information that helps convict people shooting sea lions in Puget Sound.

The Sea Shepherd Society is urging people with information to call investigators with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries Service.

Nine sea lions and a harbor seal have been found dead since mid-December from Seattle to south Puget Sound, and X-rays have confirmed that at least three of the sea lions were shot.
