Police Investigate Killing Of MI Swans

Who would kill a family of swans intentionally? That’s the question Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies are trying to answer. The department’s Derrick Jackson says the swans were not in the roadway, but off on the side.

“There was a family of swans lined up along a swampy pond area right off the side of the road, and you can see right after the intersection, it appears there was a vehicle that ran right over the entire family, killing all of them,” Jackson said.

Jackson says based on the tire marks at the scene they are looking for an all-terrain type vehicle with 13-and-a-half-inch mud wheels. Police say it’s possibly a Jeep.
