PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. — A Pinellas County man is raising "reward money" to catch the person shooting birds with a paintball gun.

It started last month then stopped and now someone is back at it again.

The man took these photos this week birds spotted on Pinellas Way South one splattered with blue paint another with yellow.

He says wildlife officers told him someone in South Pasadena is shooting these animals with a paintball gun.
