Dogs in Sochi, Swans in New York: Culling Must End (Op-Ed)

Dogs in Sochi, Swans in New York: Culling Must End (Op-Ed)Marc Bekoff, emeritus professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, is one of the world's pioneering cognitive ethologists, a Guggenheim Fellow, and co-founder with Jane Goodall of Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Another story that crossed my desk at about the same time is called "New Yorkers in Uproar Over Planned Mass-Killing of Swans." Hefty (weighing in at around 40 pounds) and hungry (everyday each swan can eat around 10 pounds of aquatic vegetation daily) and thought to be very aggressive to other birds, non-native mute swans have become a pest to some people because they destroy ecosystems and displace native species.
