Gazette. E-mails circulated around campus today asking for donations to the Essex wildlife trust in memory of the cygnets. Horrifying to think someone would shoot baby animals for sport. Sad to think the cygnets won't be around campus anymore. The bird life is one of the best parts of this campus--certainly the liveliest. Thoughts go out to the parents of the four young swans.
