Reward for stolen bald eagle increases as search continues

Posted: Updated:
QUOGUE -

As much as $20,000 is now being offered for the return of a stolen bald eagle.

Officials at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge say Sammy was stolen early July 16, and are worried because the eagle has an amputated wing and can't fly.

The surveillance video shows a man walking from the refuge with Sammy.

A $5,000 reward is being offered by police, as well as another $5,000 from the Nassau County SPCA.

Now, the Suffolk SPCA had added an additional $10,000.            

Anyone with info is asked to call the police or the SPCA.
