The Scum are at it again,

The two swans that have been on the canal at clayton have been killed today, shot by some mindless scum, people are going rightly mad about it on facebook, but if caught it will make very little difference imho, there is NO real deterrent if they are, the do-gooders have seen to that. makes me want to puke.

That makes me very very sad.
I do not get why anyone would want to harm these majestic birds.

Re: The Scum are at it again,

What a truly senseless thing to do! Is there any indication as to who/what is responsible for the situation?

Re: The Scum are at it again,

Only indication i have is someone said they had there pellet gun stolen the other week, and was told 2 lads about 15 yrs old were spotted on the canal bank with a pellet gun plus another gun, so if thats the case? then if caught they will get next to sod all and not even be named.

Re: The Scum are at it again,

The Country has definitely taken a downward turn, I do sometimes wonder as to how things became so twisted & where have we gone wrong. Admittedly I do have my views & opinions, same as many folk do, but it seems no one is listening.

Re: The Scum are at it again,

To me its taken a downward turn long ago, teachers are prevented from discipline now, respect went out the window, and no-one can enforce it any more. thats my honest view.

I wonder if these boys have ever had pets...or do they think that it is like a video game...you shoot, you kill, but they get up and have another life.
I wish them Karma.

Re: The Scum are at it again,

We should teach them some useful trades - ship them off the places like Rockall and St Kilda with a load of timber, and other materials, basic tools and let them build their own accommodation thereby learning something useful and then leave them there for the foreseeable future

You can usually find swans and geese anywhere between Burnley road/Altham canal bridge and express gifts in Accrington

If a similar situation were to occur again it would probably be more effective to send the film to the RSPCA. When they were to take it to the police they would take it directly to the 'wildlife team' (or whatever your force calls them) that most forces now have. Much more chance of getting attention there than being lost in a list of drunks, shoplifting, road accidents etc.
