    Michigan DNR and National Fish and Wildlife, they do it every year. The mute swans with the orange bill are invasive.

    It's a wonderful thing. They need to shoot them all.

    Only if the DNR had a flock of swans fully committed at 50 yards, then the others opened up at a 100 yard passing swan. Just my PM experience.
