A young adult and two juveniles are charged for allegedly consuming the community's cherished mother swan and snatching her brood on Memorial Day in upstate New York.

The three companions, who are aged 16, 17, and 18, told police they didn't know the swan, Faye, belonged to the town of Manlius and believed it to be a big duck. Eman Hassan, a Syracuse resident, has been identified as the 18-year-old. Grand larceny, criminal mischief, conspiracy, and criminal trespass are all felonies that have been brought against all three.

The trio allegedly told police they were out "hunting" early on Monday when they jumped a fence near Manlius Swan Pond, killed Faye, and took her four cygnets. According to investigators, the teenagers planned to keep the four baby swans as pets and brought Faye's body back to their homes to eat.

The father of the cygnets, Manny, was left by himself in the pond

Police were able to find two of the cygnets at a store in the Shop City Plaza in the Town of Salina thanks to several suggestions. Officers located the other two cygnets at a private home in Syracuse after further inquiry.

The biologist "who ensures the health and wellbeing of the swans for the Village of Manlius," according to the police, is now taking care of the four cygnets. After being charged, Hussan was freed on his own recognizance. His court appearance is set on June 15. With reminders to appear in court, the two minors were returned to their parents.

Manlius is a tiny community with a population of roughly 4,600 people, located about 10 miles east of Syracuse. Since they were initially introduced to the pond in the early 20th century, the swans have served as a representation of the community.
