Police looking for suspect who reportedly hit swan with boat intentionally


The Executive Director of the Cape Wildlife Center says a swan that was believed to have been hit intentionally by a fisherman is dead.

Zak Mertz says the swan was euthanized as a result of an infection that stemmed from its injuries after being hit on May 12th on Mashpee-Wakeby pond.

Mertz says local animal control officers spent two weeks looking for the bird.

The Mashpee Police Department is looking for the suspect.
