Feral mute swans are not protected and may be shot. However, be careful that they are feral and are not owned by someone because you could be held liable for killing them as not all Mutes are feral. Generally, feral swans can fly while those owned by someone are pinioned and cannot fly. This is for PA, some states do protect them.

What about other waterfowl not on the list of protected. I cheecked the 50 CFR 10.13 and found that egyptian geese as well as mute swans are not on the list. Are egyptian geese fair game as well.

Thanks John
