Reports of swans attacked and shot at Thamesmead’s Southmere lake

Greenwich police have stated that the Wildlife Crime Unit have received reports of swans being shot in Thamesmead.

The shootings are reported at Southmere lake.

Police state: “It’s an offence to kill, injure or take a swan. To report an offence against swans please call 101/999 (if taking place at the time of reporting)”

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    If I believed in the death penalty I’d string ’em up.

    Totally agree with Dave and Tim Scott. They pick on innocent animals as they cannot fight back. If it was an adult person they would fight back and thrash the cowardly culprits to with in a inch of their life,

    Total scum.
