Our Young Swan Suffers a Second Attack

The Young Swan has survived a second attack by Mr. Swan, but only barely. He is injured and needs veterinary care.

Katia Mason shares the following, “Tonight the Young Swan was being chased then attacked by the Senior Male Swan in the Harbor. The neighbors at Hawthorne Point ran into the harbor and broke up the attack and protected the young swan.  Thank goodness for Jodi Swenson at Cape Ann Wildlife who got their message and came to help complete the rescue before the tide came in and it got too dark.
Thanks to the Good Morning Gloucester Blog, neighbors had been following the story and knew what was happening. “

  1. This should have NEVER happened! He should’ve been allowed by the authorities to go back to the only home he knows, with Lyn Fonzo until a permanent home could be found.

  2. How can this be let go to happen?! This swan needs protection & a forever home to survive. Thanks to those who were watching. If I had a place,I would step up & provide a home.
    Can Mass Audubon perhaps provide a home, & have the swan be a part of their animal education programming?
    This bird cannot be released into the wild again.
