The mute swan population in Michigan is being drastically reduced through systematic and brutal mass killings. The swans are being blamed for harming the environment, but no scientific studies have been done to justify these extreme actions.

So they are not an aggressive invasive species. You better have petitions for Long Island, Michigan, Florida, Maryland, Viginia. You know they can eat 8 pounds of submerged aquatic vegetation per day - and important nursery area for the fish and crabs that are critical to the Chesapeake Bay estuary. Most states have wisely concluded that if they allow swans to be “adopted” as pets would not only fail to solve the immediate problem, but may actually compound it. The plans held often supported by National Audubon Society, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Severn River Association, the South River Federation, the American Bird Conservancy, the Wildlife Management Institute and numerous other organizations.

Not a chance that I will sign. 1) The are an invasive species imported from Europe to look good on park lakes. 2) They are highly aggressive and are driving out the Native and endangered Trumpeter Swans. 3) They have no fear of people and attack, particularly during breeding season. And if they attack an adult you will yell for help and have bruises and welts for weeks, they can knock small children out. 4) They are known to kill ducks and other water fowl. In NY a pair was put into the Water fowl enclosure and they killed 50 other birds before they were removed. 5) They reproduce rapidly increasing their populations by nearly 10% per year, the entire population of Michigan. The population was a single pair in Chatevoix County 1919 which was 2,000 plus a second flock in SW Michigan by 1990 then 5,700 in 2000 and by 2010 the Michigan Mute Swan population was 15,500. They are different than Pythons in Florida, Nutria all over the Southern US, Cane Toads etc., etc., etc..
