I actually love crackling, on pork or goose.

Ofcourse, I love skin on people as well, but not for the eating of.

These "psycho swans" don't :-

 Violent swans face pond eviction  

A pair of violent swans face eviction from their home on a village pond after a series of attacks on visitors.
Australian black swans Charlie and Sophie have lived in Alderton, Wiltshire, for several years.

But their aggressively territorial behaviour has seen them set upon humans and feathered visitors alike, leading to the deaths of two rare birds.

Now locals have had enough, and once the pair's cygnets are old enough to cope on their own, they will be moved.

Warning signs have been posted around the pond warning against Charlie's propensity to attack people.
 
Parish councillor George Lynham said: "Charlie has no respect for human beings - although the pond is fenced off if, it is possible for him to get to humans and he has no problems about attacking their arms or ankles."

But since he and Sophie became parents in May, the couple have begun picking on other birds.

"Instead of just attacking humans, he has developed turbo-charged speed to cross the pond and attack birds," explained Mr Lynham.

After killing a Ross's goose from America and a red-crested pochard, a duck normally only found in mainland Europe, Charlie was captured and moved to another pond.
In his absence Sophie became more violent, and although Charlie has since returned there are plans to evict both birds soon.

Mr Lynham said: "If we leave them there they will kill more so the decision has been made to move them to a new habitat."

Not allowed to  do that in the U.K. Tony, it's an offence to kill any swans as they are protected species - Royal birds.

Love you lots

I do love Swans. surely when on the water the most graceful and beautiful  of creatures, and in flight, pristine in form and nature.

My head is not what it used to be.
