Tests Show Eight Swans Were Shot with BB Gun

SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) -- Tests on eight swans found dead in the lake of a suburban Atlanta subdivision found that they were shot with a BB gun.
WSB Radio reports that Gwinnett County police detectives are conducting interviews in the case. Suspects face charges ranging from animal cruelty to destruction of property.
Residents of the Rosemoore Lake subdivision in Suwanee found the dead swans Saturday. Longtime resident Marilyn King says the swans were a mated couple and their six offspring.
Patti Webb says the homeowners association may put up a reward for information leading to an arrest. She says that for now, the neighborhood has no plans to replace the swans because they don't want to set up other animals to be targeted.
