Sign: Justice For Beloved Mother Swan Killed And Eaten By Teens

Published: June 01, 2023 at 01:12 PM Author: Penny Eims

Manlius, NY – Over the Memorial Day weekend, a beloved mother swan was killed by a group of teenage friends who took her body home to be cooked and eaten by their friends and family. For more than a decade, the residents of Manlius had enjoyed watching Faye and her devoted companion, Manny, at Manlius Swan Pond.

But the tranquil existence of this magnificent bird was tragically cut short when a heart-wrenching incident unfolded. Three teenagers unlawfully trespassed into the fenced boundaries of the Manlius Swan pond, cruelly ending Faye’s life and callously abducting her four precious offspring.

Thanks to tips reported to the local authorities, the three teenagers accused of the abhorrent crime were identified and charged. The authorities have identified 18-year-old Eman Hussan as a participant in Faye’s killing. Two other teens, ages 16 and 17, were also arrested and charged; because of their age, their names were not publicly released.

The authorities were able to track down Manny and Faye’s offspring; two of the cygnets were found at Shop City Plaza and two were found at a Syracuse residence. It is unclear what the teens planned to do with the baby swans.

For the next four weeks, a biologist will be caring for the orphaned babies, and Manny, Faye’s faithful mate, will be removed from the pond he called home because officials fear that he will become combative now that his lifelong companion is gone.

The teens involved in this disgusting act of cruelty have tried to claim that they thought Faye, a large, regal swan, was a duck, and that they were “hunting.” It is impossible to comprehend that they would break into a fenced enclosure, in the middle of the night, and hold down and behead a nesting swan, with a claim of “hunting.” The authorities are not buying their story.

If you believe that Faye’s slaughter is pure evil, please add your name to the petition today.

Watch Eman Hussan’s arrest; he is smiling and seems to show zero remorse. Hussan is due in court on June 15. The court dates of the other two teenage suspects are unknown at this time.

We the undersigned demand that Eman Hussan and the two teenage accomplices are held responsible for breaking into the Manlius swan pond and killing a nesting swan named Faye. We are petitioning for these teenagers to receive the maximum punishment allowable by law for their felony counts of grand larceny and mischief, as well as misdemeanor counts of conspiracy and criminal trespass stemming from the Memorial Weekend killing of Faye. This is an appalling and senseless crime that must be taken seriously by the court system.

Individuals are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. Animal Victory relies upon the authorities and the court system to determine guilt or innocence.

Update 9/1/2023: There have been three arrests made in this case. The case is now being managed by Assistant District Attorney J.P. Walker who informed Animal Victory the two “juveniles” are in family court, and their names are not being released. The 18-year-old, Eman Hussan, has been released and no bond was posted. ADA Walker stated that this is an active investigation and that the case will probably come before a Judge rather than a trial jury. Information is not available and will not be released regarding the 16 and 17-year-olds who were also arrested in this case.
