Trumpeter Swan Euthanized

Game wardens continue searching for whoever shot several trumpeter swans last week near Lockney. On Monday, one of the swans was euthanized. The swan was put down after surgery was unable to stabilize the bird's leg.

The trumpeter was one of three injured. Two others were shot and killed. Trumpeter swans are not considered endangered in Texas, but it is against the law to kill them.

If you have any information about the incident, you are encouraged to call "Operation Game Thief" toll free at 1-800-792-GAME.
