Three swans shot in Thamesmead: Appeal for help

An appeal has been launched after three swans were shot with ball bearings in Thamesmead.

The incidents occurred on 31st October at Southmere Lake.

All three are now recovery at swan sanctuary.

Anyone with information or any witnesses can help by calling 101 and quoting CAD 4259/02Nov

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

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

    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… 😡😢
