Reward for Georgia swan killer

  • Follow Latest News

SUWANEE, Ga. — A suburban Atlanta neighborhood is offering a $5,000 reward to help find the killer of eight swans that lived in the Suwanee subdivision.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Humane Society of the United States doubled the $2,500 reward offered by the Rosemoore Lake neighborhood. The swans, two adults and a six offspring, were killed June 8.

It’s the third such killing in as many years in the neighborhood.

The swans were discovered by a resident. They had been shot with an air rifle and dumped in a creek just behind the subdivision.

Police have assigned a detective to the case. The person responsible could face animal cruelty and criminal damage to property charges.

The swans were worth about $9,000.

What could possibly have been

What could possibly have been a motivation for that? It sounds like somebody just wanted to get rid of them, and I cannot imagine why. I don't know much about swans, but they seem pretty benign to me as opposed to geese who can be very territorial plus crap all over the place.

Not trying to justify the killing, but they DO make as much mess as ducks and geese.
