Mute Swan killings in Michigan

We are trying to save our mute swans from being killed in Michigan. Our Department of Natural Resources is falsely claiming that the the mute swans are a non- native invasive species that are eating all the sub aquatic vegetation in our lakes and are aggressive towards native waterfowl (trumpeter and Canada goose) and humans. If you could please get to the press and spread the information on these killings. The DNR and the Governor do like bad press. They have a Pure Michigan campaign going on about how great our state is for the outdoors. People need to know this is happening. Please contact me with questions or anything you need. We are also working with the Humane Society of the United States and I also see that Ele has contacted you as well.
Thank You.
