Writer wants swans protected

This is a response to the letter from Georgette Anthony. I think you have a heart, but we know where the blame lies with who killed the swan and her eggs. It was the Gerling/Heimarch family. They called ODNR, and they requested the kill order which was issued to them. It was the same family that hired the trapper to kill Samantha. So now we know who is to blame.

This family has torn apart the residents of Buckeye Lake. At one time the swans were protected in 2001 and that was overturned in 2006. So now I am contacting Governor Strickland and trying to get the swans protected again. Now I need all the residents to help me get the law changed. Let’s save the swans.
