  • Hope they catch the deranged culprits. If they are shooting animals they’ll be shouting humans next!

  • Seriously,, WTF is happening to our local area? Fireworks being thrown, Police hurt, along with another stabbing in Woolwich, and now three harmless swans being shot. This all getting beyond a joke… 😡😢

  • I could not agree with you more @ Plumstead Resident. on both your comments.
