Thug Psycho Swan Smashes Hobby Boats

SWAN LAKE - Psycho swan smashes up eight model boats worth up to 120k on popular lake.

Boat owners are at their wit's end as aggressive swan launches reign of terror on Suffolk lake. Outraged model boater Dean Cable, 23, has now even written to the Queen, pleading for the sovereign to take action after having two of his vessels attacked.

Cable, of Wickham Skeith, said hes too frightened to put his pride and joy in the water if the swan is about.

He said: I wrote to the Queen telling her the swan is a menace and I would like him to be moved on if possible.

Personally I am on the Swan's side. Surely they should know by now that swan's can be very aggressive and protective during their breeding season, especially when they have cygnets. He is only trying to protect his wife and babies from invaders into his territory. Surely they would not be stupid enough to try to relocate just this one swan, taking him away from his family. Swan's mate for life and divorce is very rare for them. Besides that if they relocate him he will probably just fly back there so they will gain nothing.

I say good on you Mr. Swan. You are a great husband and father.

Yes Kate!

EXACTLY!

This is the swans territory and home its not like it understands what these noisy intrusive boats are doing. It only knows they are too close to its babies and mate.

People are the ones who are suppose to know better and should be more understanding of wildlife.

Take your boats and go sail, race and enjoy them somewhere else.

Simple!

Or just wait for breeding season to end. These swans may also migrate during the winter months. They may stay within the UK but move to an area where there is more food during winter and join up with other swans in their winter staging area.

As for his letter to the Queen, although she retains the ownership of all unmarked mute swans in open water, she only exercises her ownership on certain stretches of the Thames and it surrounding tributaries.

Another good point. Just wait until breeding season is over and the swans have moved on.

I have a friend here in the city who has a canadian geese couple come to nest on her balcony year after year. Her neighbors complain to the city constantly about it.

Yet the city refuses to move the geese and they go out of their way to tell people that complain that the mating pair will leave with their goslings in about 6 - 8 weeks so they have to put up with the noise in the meantime.

Apparently the geese are pretty noisy in the morning when they call to each other to relieve each others nest duties. The noise annoys people living next to my friends apartment.

The city says leave nature alone, you are lucky this isn't happening 24 hours a day 7 day a week 365 days a year so shut up and put up with it.

Why these geese come back to her balcony year after year is a mystery to all as the woman has 6 cats that all sit on the windowsill inside her apartment and keep a constant watch out on the breeding pair and the babies.

Its like Live Bird tv for cats.

Good on the city for not listening to the complaints from the neighbours. And good on your friend for not inhibiting the breeding of the Geese.

I like the idea of live tv for cats. They have their own reality show. Mind you I would not like to see the results of a cat taking on a breeding pair of Canada Geese, I think the cat would come off second best.
