Swan at Harrison Park

City of Owen Sound staff discovered one of the domestic swans housed in Harrison Park had died on Wednesday, April 26.

The City is working to have testing completed to confirm the cause of death.  This swan was 17 years of age and is suspected to have died of natural causes.  Its mate had apprently died some years ago.

The Harrison Park swans are descendants of the original six swans gifted to then-Mayor Elias Lemon from King George V in 1912. 

The five other domestic swans currently appear to be healthy.
