Thanks for the information. Very much appreciated. Because of public outcry and resistance from the Lake County Board of Supervisors the California Department of Fish and Wildlife has withdrawn their extermination plan “for the time being”. We are forming a “Save Our Swans Clear Lake Society” to oppose future such proposals and to offer a rational proposal for setting the lake’s carrying capacity and managing the population once it reaches that capacity, which is likely to a decade or more down the road. We are looking at addling of eggs as the most reasonable and humane method of population control.
