SUNRIVER, OR -- The search continues for those responsible for the death of a famous local swan. Members of the Sunriver Citizen Patrol Hasty Response Team and two Sunriver officers spent about four hours looking for evidence of the shooting that killed “Chuck” the trumpeter swan on Thanksgiving. 

 

The Sunriver Nature Center and Observatory is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest of the person or persons responsible for the swan's death. The East Cascades Audubon Society has donated an additional $500, taking the total reward to $1,500. 

 
Swans are protected in Oregon because they're not considered game birds, and killing one intentionally can lead to both a fine and jail time. Anyone with information is asked to call Sunriver PD or the Oregon State Police Fish and game Tipline.
