We have some mute swans in Chautauqua County on Cassadaga Lake, and I have not heard that they are causing any particular problems....

How about someone doing something about all the seagulls on the harbor in Dunkirk. The bacteria levels in the lake have got to be outrageous because of them. Either relocate them or trap and kill em but someone needs to address it.

The problem is the "however" that depends on a government agency for creating this problem. Humans have taken over the ecology and we expect it to cater to our designs for it. The Swans have different needs.
Many who follow the Bible don't seem to understand why we should protect the world that (they believe) God created. This question this goes to the anti-science of those who believe that the world we know is 6000 years old--against all (ALL) scientific findings. Believe in evolution or not, but the empirical evidence is to the contrary. What shall we do when faith is contradicted by empirical fact; for example, carbon dating of the earth's history? I often read scientific accounts in the news and wonder, "How can you deny this?". On what basis can you begin to claim that the world as we know it was created 6000 years ago? How, given the story of Noah's ark, did Kangaroos end up in Australia, with no evidence of their trip from a mountain in Turkey?
What a shame for Chautauqua County residents, who so enjoy watching and photographing these beautiful birds. The last I knew, there were five swans on Cassadaga Lake. It isn't as if they are over-running the lake. I was just commenting how I couldn't wait for the weather to get warmer so I could ride over and get some new images of the swans. Half the fun is finding them! I would truly hate to see them removed. A lot of love and effort has gone into these birds. They are a SYMBOL of Cassadaga. They are SYMBOLS of love. They are a joy to behold.
