Stop the Slaughter! The shooting of the magnificent Black Swans has become a tourist attraction in New Zealand. Boaters hoard swans into the harbor to facilitate their slaughter … Following the massacre, the typical “Swan Song” fills the air — the heart-rendering voices of the surviving mates calling their mates (Black Swans mate for life) …The wildlife protection agencies don’t think that people care enough to make it “worth their while” … Please help stop the slaughtering of black swans!
