The Mute Swans in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park have repeatedly suffered injuries from fishing line and hooks left behind by fishermen. While Mute Swans are an introduced species, that doesn’t excuse the harm caused by careless anglers, and it is almost certain that Mallards and Canada Geese are suffering the same types of injuries. Obviously, enforcement of litter laws would help, but perhaps it is time to ban fishing in what is a heavily-used urban park?
