Swan Pond

What an odd way to die.

Canadian geese have become pests here, especially in ponds. But there's a company that will rent you a swan, to keep in your pond, to keep the geese away.

Mind you, you can't just kill the geese. They're protected. But you can let other animals, like dogs or swans, chase them away. Welcome to the wacky world of wildlife law.

Saturday, a guy who works for this company, was kayaking in such a pond, checking on the swan, and somehow got attacked by the swan.

His kayak capsized. He drowned.

Before you kayak near a swan
be sure to have your life vest on.
