Family of Six Swans Stoned to Death



The Associated Humane Societies is offering a $1,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of those involved in the stoning to death of a family of swans.

Newark's Weequahic Park has been home to families of swans that were enjoyed by those who frequented the park.

A family of swans -- mother, father and 6 baby cygnets -- were there for several weeks. The Society was called to rescue the one surviving baby -- the rest of the family had been stoned to death. The baby was immediately ambulanced to The Raptor Trust for care. According to a spokesperson at Raptor, the cygnet has a fractured mandible and cannot eat properly Not only is his body fighting infection, he has also been injured by a snapping turtle. Due to all of these issues, the swan can never be released back to the wild. The Raptor Trust works with several area animal lovers who have private ponds to keep such handicapped swans.

Our thanks to Channel 12 for helping us to get this message out to the public.
