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!
