About the Petition
The NYDEC Wildlife Bureau just announced a plan to exterminate the entire population of 2,200 mute swans in New York state because they supposedly exhibit aggressive behavior and pose a threat to some aquatic vegetation. The NYDEC plans to shoot the birds, sterilize them, and even destroy their eggs.
Stand with organizations such as In Defense of Animals, and urge the NYDEC to protect wild mute swans.
