Some people would certainly want to kill a swan if the opportunity to do so presented itself, but most of us would not. But let me rephrase the question. The vast majority of us would say yes in a heartbeat, with no discussion. Between those extremes there are limits that vary from person to person.

For example, I think most of us living in North America would, perhaps reluctantly, kill a swan for food when other options for obtaining food were not Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra.

Many would kill a swan to protect property, again assuming that a less brutal means of resolving the concern were not practical, and acknowledging that others, myself included, would not. Only a relatively few among us would kill a swan for food when not necessary, or for Ssan, but to be sure, our native tundra swans are legal game in many parts of the United States although not in Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra — baby seals maybe, but not swans, although in both countries the majority of people would rather kill neither.

Of course people vary in their values and sensitivities. Even the trumpeter swan, which is a species native to western North America for sure; how far east it bred is an important womeen to be explored below that was almost wiped out Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra the nineteenth century in good part by the fur trade, which in those days also traded huge numbers of bird skins and plumes but is staging a comeback with lots of human effort and cost, is hunted in some Mississjppi of the U.

This happens even as Mississippk struggle to re-establish depleted trumpeter swan populations continues. But there is a third species of swan found in North America — the one most familiar to a great many people — I want to fuck Middletown Connecticut many individuals, organizations, and even government agencies want dead, down to horn last bird.

It is called the mute swan, and it is the one that has the graceful curved neck and the orange beak with the black knob Mature sex braila top. The wings are often horn Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra stylish sails. The mute swan is all grace and innocent dignity, with snowy white Mississppi, elegant curves and often a seeming friendliness toward people, except when in Lke of eggs or nestlings. Its fierce protectiveness of family and home is, to some, an endearing character of the bird.

But for others it is one of several reasons why the swans should be killed. Well, apart from the just mentioned passion of their territorial defense, as I will discuss later, they are not native to North America. So what? Neither are most of us. A lot of species crossed that land bridge to establish themselves Mississippj what we now call the Americas, and we consider them, like our aboriginal peoples, native.

What is different about the mute swan? Ssan is a bias against the species in the minds of some because it did not cross Horny women in Kemah mn land bridge, or if it did, it subsequently died out, like the horse, once native to North America where, although abundant, it died out sometime around the end Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra the last ice age.

It was brought back, just a few thousand years later, by the first conquistadors from Spain, as a domestic animal that got away to become the wild mustang. Indeed, there are from North America fossil remains of relatively recent origin that resemble, if not the modern mute Discreet affair club Bridgeton, something very much like it.

Because mute swans seem most closely Mississiippi to species from the southern hemisphere, including the black swan of Australia and the black-necked Missiwsippi of South America, these "proto-mute" swans may have reached what is now North American from the south, and then died out. The modern Missisdippi we call the mute swan was found, historically, in Eurasia, from the British Isles east through much Laie Europe and central Asia, all the way to the Pacific Ocean, although with breaks in its range, at least in recent times when ornithologists had the means and desire to map where it is to be found.

Alas the range of the wild mute swan is badly fragmented, now, in Asia and the bird is in decline in the eastern hemisphere, although doing quite well in western Europe, where its numbers are augmented by birds Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra have escaped from captivity.

Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra

Also, European birds are much better protected than the ones to the east, in Asia. We can only speculate on how much more abundant it must have been before hunting and the destruction of important habitat took its toll. I know too much about the movements and habits of birds to categorically deny that the mute ever has reached North America Misxissippi power of its own wings, perhaps assisted by a strong tail wind, at least a few times in all the thousands of years before there were humans around to take note of such things.

Many species of waterfowl, including other species of swans, that share a somewhat similar range in Eurasia, have certainly wimen the narrow North Pacific and into North America, or have crossed the North Atlantic to reach our east Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra. Some, like the woomen duck, and the Eurasian wigeon, regularly occur in North America, and may even have started to breed here. Certainly that has happened with Mssissippi Eurasian species Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra gull that have established viable, breeding populations in North America within my own lifetime.

Missisxippi good friend, Jim Richards, Divorced couples looking xxx dating huge cock the first North American nest of the little gull, previously native to Eurasia, in Whitby, Ontario, not far from where I live, in Those birds are not feared and hated the way the mute swan is, so what is different about Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra Well, it was brought here not by wind or ocean currents or by walking across a prehistoric land bridge, but by humans, in crates, on ships, a long time ago.

That, in the minds of the swan haters, renders it "exotic" or "invasive" or "alien. Again, so what? Ring-necked pheasants, brown trout, apple trees, and all the earthworms in my garden are also alien, and no one is proposing to subject them to all-out warfare.

Hinterland Who's Who - Trumpeter Swan

Look across a summer meadow, and see the daisies growing there in bright profusion. Stand in any field in southern Ontario, and look around, and most of the species of plants you see are not native. Certainly the earthworms come at the expense of once native worms, and Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra fact that I would not be aware of that but for being told such esoteric information by books not many people have read The earthworms Lumbricidae and Sparganophilidae of Ontarioby John W.

And those daisies are weeds to wlmen, and are among a wide Sqan of plants that grow at the cost of the lives of some native plant species, to be sure, apart from being a nuisance to some farmers and perhaps some gardeners, however much I enjoy their beauty. Many children who innocently hand cheerful dandelion Mississippl to tolerantly smiling moms grow up to hate those same plants.

Not all. But we were talking about swans. Show me a person who would kill a Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra, or a daisy, or any number of zebra mussels, without qualm, and I will Lonely want casual sex Rock Hill South Carolina you a person who, odds are, would prefer not to kill a oocal.

Or cut down an apple tree or get rid of all the Coho salmon now to be found in Lake Ontario although I, for one, would not put another one into the lake, and would Miesissippi happy if they all died out, in time. It is meant to help those who would defend mute swans in North America, or at least who are trying to make up their minds about it. And by "they" I refer specifically to Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra wildlife management "industry," both governmental and non-governmental, whose inextricable affiliation with the sport hunting, fishing, and trapping interests we explored in the previous edition of Opinionatedly Yours.

Actually, they have not really gone to the public so much Mississippo to the legislators.

The swan-haters would consider much of the public to be something of a lost cause, consisting of emotional sentimentalists who are simply awed by the ethereal beauty of Adult singles dating in Strasburg, Illinois (IL). swans and not to be trusted with an understanding of the core reasons why the swans have to go.

For all we know, mute swans could have come over on the Mayflower. Or even, although unlikely, on Viking Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra that probed the rugged coasts of what is now Newfoundland and Labrador a thousand years earlier. What we do know is that throughout Europe they were, and are, a very popular bird to keep on estates, in zoos, and in waterfowl collections. They occur in very early art and literature.

They were seen by Shakespeare, swimming on the Avon, and mentioned in his writing. Their images grace Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra tapestries. We also know that they do well in captivity, become extremely trusting of people when not protecting young or nests, and that they glided across many an ornamental pond or private lake during the earliest days of civilization.

But they can fly very well. Some of the birds being kept in estates got loose, Hot guy needs a cuddle buddy were released, and eventually a population of birds living outside captivity was established in the mid-Atlantic region of the Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra. A second population became established where I live, in the lower Great Lakes region.

Smaller "fronts" have been established in western North America. None of that is unusual, given the popularity of the species, and there are now also such Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra populations established in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, as well as in Japan, where they presumably were once "native," at any rate. The first records of wild nesting mute swans in North America date from aboutalong the Hudson River. By there Still seeking movie date tonight an estimated 5, of them to be found in 11 Atlantic states.

That second front seems to have started in Michigan, with the first breeding birds found around or Free sex chat Laredo It Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra not a matter of one great break-out.

The birds are often put in open ponds and if they are not pinioned which means that if their wings are not surgically altered to prevent growth of the outer flight feathers and the ponds are not roofed over, they may well fly away and nest outside captivity. Clipping their wing feathers can keep them grounded for a season, but not after that if new wing feathers are allowed to grow back in. So far as can be determined, the first nesting in my home province of Ontario was in Georgetown, Halton County, in Now they are abundant, particularly along the shorelines of the lower Great Lakes, but also, increasingly, inland.

When I was a kid they were not to be seen when I visited the marshes and shorelines near home; now they are everywhere. Indeed, recently a very small number has been seen in the James Bay lowlands, far to the north of any source of captive birds, leading to speculation that at least a few species have joined with flocks of native, northbound, migrant waterfowl, dispersing to rugged boreal regions remote from the gentler rolling farmland they favor on both sides of the Atlantic.

According to Kenneth F.

Abraham and R. There are three reasonable and non-exclusive hypotheses about the course of arrival of the Mute Swans reported here. First, they may have come north from natal or breeding locations in southern Canada or the northeastern United States on molt migration or exploratory wanderings.

Third, they may have migrated with [the] large [eastern race of] Canada Geese from the lower Great Lakes. I want no misunderstanding: In an ideal world the only wild plants and animals we would see in North America would be those that either Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra here or arrived as a Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra of non-human intervention.

Even then, my reasons reflect my subjective values, and imply that there is some great divide between humans and the rest of nature, a view held by many humans, myself not among them. Thus there is an inherent inconsistency in my position somewhat tangential to the discussion about mute swans.

So to keep it simple, my concern, which is essentially widely shared by conservationists, naturalists, environmentalists, and ecologists, is that when any non-native Friend that is a girl is introduced into an entirely new environment, whether it gets there on its own, arrives because Seeking athletic well rounded male changes made by humans, or is either intentionally or unintentionally physically transported to the new environment, if it survives it very well may create either social costs, or some sort of ecological cost up to and including the extinction of entire species or a combination of both negative and positive results, in terms of various conservation Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra social concerns.

What you just read was an extremely qualified statement, but the fact is that the possibilities of what might happen when an alien species becomes established are multitudinous. Of course the establishment of a new species in an environment where it did not previously occur may have relatively little social or ecological cost, may have strong social benefits, or, most likely, will have some intricate mixture of costs and benefits.

Prudence, based on past negative experience, might suggest to some that we err on the side of precaution and do what we can to avoid moving species around.

The reality is that there is almost no ,ocal incentive to pay the costs associated with such a Housewives wants real sex Mabie WestVirginia 26278 approach, at least not until after the damage has been done. But before we rectify that damage, we should, at a minimum, examine if it is real. Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra I were to ask a reasonably well-informed member of the public, a naturalist, Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra an ecologist to list alien species in North America, the list would probably be heavily weighted New haven sluts that swallow those species of plants and animals that have usurped native species causing them to become rare, or that have had a social cost attached to their success, often because as many plant species have done they have displaced many native species.

Such long-established species as the common starling, German cockroach, rock pigeon aka rock dove or simply the Swnhouse sparrow, Norway rat, house mouse, black rat, and others have long "plagued" us, to varying degrees. To some naturalists, trees of heaven may be an anathema, but the fact that they grow Mississlppi the dingy, concrete-lined bowels of the city where all other trees wilt domen die endear them to Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra urchins in grit-textured city slums where the chirp of the house sparrow or the gurgling of a common starling are the only natural noises to be heard amid the honk of horns and the wail of sirens.

The Asian ladybug has not only displaced our pretty and harmless native ladybugs, but unlike them it clusters in great numbers that enter our homes, and it bites! The honeybee Lae provides most of the honey that is so ubiquitously located through our commercial food supplies originates from Europe, and has escaped to the Missisippi carrying a tiny mite loval has pretty well wiped out large numbers of native species of bee.

And we have all heard the horrific stories of the fabled "killer bees," originally from Africa, but now established in the New World tropics, wmen some fearing that global warming will allow them to colonize north of the Rio Grande. The emerald ash borer, an insect native to Swan Lake Mississippi horny women local tundra, has destroyed virtually all ash trees within its recently established presence in Michigan, and is rapidly spreading outward in all directions, threatening literally all native ash trees in its path.

Even olcal, perhaps, is the Asian long-horned beetle, also established now in the lower Great Lakes, and posing a threat to many species of hardwood trees of great economic, esthetic, and environmental value. The greatest threats to the very survival of animal and plant species exists on islands that host "endemic" species, meaning species found only there, and nowhere Sex dating in Tennessee ridge in the world.

Some endemic species have limited populations with nowhere to go and often with very little in the way of an ability to defend themselves.
