What Has Killed The Last Swan Hamilton

What Has Killed The Last Swan

Sunday July 10 2011

Pen Cob and now a dead Signet

 

 

“Where the swans nest, due to the higher water this year, there are many, maybe over populated by snapping turtles and Large Pike. There is always the likely-hood of a Snake-head fish, Raccoon’s and people being capable of killing a small Signet.The first two Signets to go missing was on Fathers Day, and the last one over this Weekend, Coincidence, No such thing.”

Signets ready to swim-only one survives
Bleak Future for the nesting swans in Hamilton

 

As a photographer that specializes in Mute Swans I feel like there is a Silent Spring ” Rachel Louise Carson (May 27, 1907 – April 14, 1964)” happening Constantly. The lack of wildlife, plants has left many people with many questions including myself. This Weekend due to health Issues I  rented a car and have been travelling around parking lot too parking Lot. Today I hiked down the Harbourfront Trail and am not shocked to see the Gazebo Signets that were born in Harbourfront Park this Year only have one outta six Signets left, I did a Post “we are the last two Sister” on my other Blog http://betterphotos4you.com. The Last Signet to go Missing was very small compared to his Sister :See image below.

Signet Still alive much larger than other

 

Where the swans nest, due to the higher water this year, there are many, maybe over populated by snapping turtles and Large Pike. There is always the likely-hood of a Snake-head fish, Raccoon’s, people and there dog’s being capable of killing a small Signet.The first two Signets to go missing was on Fathers Day, and the last one over this Weekend, Coincidence, No such thing. One whole clutch born over by Macassa Yacht Club the  signets and pen and cob disappeared on the May 24th Weekend. A good source has told me that he has seen young parents allow there children to take turtles and signet’s home with them after spending a day in the Park, or, Harbourfront Trail, I have many images of these people, but legal issues does not give me the  authority to publish them.The Parents were in there early 20,s, both of which were fishing all day and not watching there children, I did, and have images of the children throwing rocks at the nesting swan, ripping flowers out of ground etc…., children without parents. I am not going to get into the whole social aspect of today’s society and dysfunctional families or the lack of a suitable “respect nature” mindset educational System. People please respect what Mother Nature has given you ……………………………………….

Easy To Be Hard

This Image taken June 10 2011

How can people be so heartless
How can people be so cruel
Easy to be hard, easy to be cold

Beautiful Mute Swan

How can people have no feelings
How can they ignore their friends
Easy to be proud, easy to say no

Beautiful Pen

Especially people who care about strangers
Who care about evil and social injustice
Do you only care about bleeding crowd
How about a needing friend, I need a friend

I NEED A FRIEND

How can people be so heartless
You know I’m hung up on you
Easy to be proud, easy to say no

The Lone Mute swan

 

Especially people who care about strangers
Who care about evil and social injustice
Do you only care about bleeding crowd
How about a needing friend, we all need a friend

We all need a friend

How can people be so heartless
How can people be so cruel
Easy to be proud, easy to say no
Easy to be cold, easy to say no
Come, on, easy to give in, easy to say no
Easy to be cold, easy to say no
Much too easy to say no

Much too easy for some to say "No"

Lyrics by Three Dog Night

The Mute Swan is in Danger of being removed from the protected species act, why? “E coli bacteria on the beach in Harbourfront Park”<<No one use’s>> Have they forgotten about the raw sewage,poison from industry they allow to drain into Cootes Paradise Marsh, and Hamilton Harbour.?
