DNR Looking For Trumpeter Swan Shooter
(Warroad, MN) -- The D-N-R is asking the public's help to find out who
shot four immature trumpeter swans at Brown's Lake near Warroad during the
youth waterfowl weekend and ruffed grouse opener September 18th and 19th.
Trumpeter swans are a threatened species and people who shoot them face
fines up to three-thousand-dollars, plus possible loss of their shotgun and
hunting license. D-N-R officials urge hunters not to mistake swans for
Canada geese, which are much smaller and have shorter necks. A reward is
being offered for information on the trumpeter swan shootings and tipsters
can remain anonymous.
