Swan Clubbed to Death at Exclusive Trump Golf Club

An exotic black swan, nicknamed 'Alex' by members, was clubbed to death by a guest playing the exclusive Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, Fl.
The man accused of the swan's death was a guest of a Palm Beach doctor who is a member at the $40 million golf club. The attack occurred after the swan went after a ball near the 17th hole.
'We're very angry about it,' Trump said Tuesday from his New York office 'There will be severe retribution toward the club member. Maybe he'll be expelled.'
The swan was reportedly worth about $1,000 and was one of four black swans given as a gift to Trump by a close friend. It was not the first to meet with tragedy though; an alligator killed one of the other three black swans last year.
