Nutbag Sicko: Man Kills Nesting Swans in Park

Just when you think you've heard it takes a really sick fucker to do something like this. And anyone who thinks that he's going to stop with swans needs their heads examined.

My comments, as always, are in red:

New York Daily News - City News - Loon kills 2 swans in Bronx park


A heartless thug fatally beat and stabbed two swans, slashing one's throat, while the birds guarded unhatched eggs in their nest at Veterans Memorial Park in the Bronx yesterday.A group of young men were hanging out in the park around 1:20 p.m. when one of them grabbed one of the graceful birds and stomped on it while laughing, a witness told the Daily News. They found this FUNNY? Beating and slashing nesting swans? I think I'm going to be sick.

"He grabbed the bird's neck and sliced its throat," said the witness, who requested anonymity. "He kept looking to his friends for encouragement.

"They didn't do anything. It was quite disgusting. The person that did it needs help." Gee, ya think?

The men left the scene in several cars as the witness was calling for help. Neighbors alerted Animal Care and Control officers, who were nearby on an unrelated call. They rushed to the scene and called ASPCA cruelty investigators.

ASPCA Special Agent Joseph Pentangelo said the dead swans and their six eggs were brought to the ASPCA's animal hospital for examination. Officials were hoping to save the hatchlings. I hope they save the hatchlings, too.

Pentangelo said a male swan was stabbed in the chest and a female was stabbed several times and had its throat slit. Good gravy...what kind of sick asshole does this sort of thing?

"We really need people to come forward with any information about this heinous act," Pentangelo said. "This was an act of violence." I urge anyone who might have witnessed this heinous crime to come forward and turn these bastards in. As I said before...they aren't going to stop at avian life forms, folks.

The swans were well-known to residents of the area who fed them and enjoyed watching them.

"People are crying. Everyone knew them," the witness said. How sad, for a community
to lose such treasured animals because some young dirtbags want to practice for their upcoming serial killer exam. Rot in hell, guys. And I hope your hell includes being beaten and stabbed repeatedly, every day for all eternity, by large swans while others stand by and laugh. You deserve no less.

Anyone with information is urged to call the ASPCA's confidential hotline at (877) THE-ASPCA.

God, thats so fucking atrocious!

I hope those bastards are found and arrested. I have to continue believing that "what goes around comes around." Its easy for me to remember that in my own life, but I fell like sometimes I can never be too sire if it happens that way for others. Karma, it is so.
