A Minnesota man is charged with killing two federally protected trumpeter swans in Anoka County. Twenty-five-year-old Conner Walsh of Lino Lakes faces several misdemeanors in last fall’s killing of the waterfowl on Rice Lake. He was charged by summons and has to appear in court on July 17. His mother told the Star Tribune that the family has no way to reach him. According to the charges, Walsh was in a kayak when he shot and killed the birds.
