New residents arrive at Lake Prior

LOCAL SWAN steward Charlie Knigge kisses the surviving swan goodbye as our “swan guy” holds onto him.

The new swans have arrived, courtesy of the City of Woonsocket, local volunteers and Randy and Lonnie Sharping of the Plankinton area, who raise all sorts of exotic animals and birds.
The new pair have been together long enough to have raised a family of cygnets last year, and we were told that they have already started the rituals necessary to provide our town with little cygnets this year.
Charlie Knigge, Jeff and Jared Lavine and Brayden Eagle helped round up the single swan left, so Sharpings could come pick it up Monday evening.
The new swans will remain in the caged area for approximately one week in order to become acclimated with their surroundings.
We are asking the public to please refrain from getting too close to the new swans and nesting area until they can become more accustomed to their new living environment.

    THE NEW pair of swans arrived Monday and are using the next week to get used to their unfamiliar surroundings. They will be left in their nesting pen until they get acclimated.
