PETA increases reward for man who kicked squirrel into Grand Canyon

Fog drifts over parts of the Grand Canyon in Arizona on May 11, 2014The animal rights group PETA has increased its reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a man filmed kicking a squirrel into the Grand Canyon. In addition to the $15,000 bounty it offered last month, PETA on Wednesday added a free vacation to the Grand Canyon, including air fare and lodging for two, in its bid to identify the culprit seen in a video that went viral on YouTube. It showed the man luring a squirrel with food to the edge of what appeared to be the Canyon's South Rim, and then with a flick of his foot, flinging the animal into the abyss. The Grand Canyon is a mile (1.6 kilometers) deep and up to 18 miles (29 kilometers) wide.
