Swan Harassing Massachusetts Shoppers

Shoppers in downtown Wareham, Massachusetts are being harassed by the local wildlife. According to, a swan has been hanging out in front of stores confronting pedestrians, and attacking cars. David DePonte says his car was attacked last weekend, noting that the bird "seemed to be disgruntled." Ornithologist Wayne Petersen says it's likely the bird has figured out that people have food, and becomes upset when it isn't fed. Petersen adds that the authorities will more than likely be forced to relocate the swan if it continues to cause problems.
