NEW ORLEANS, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Police say New Orleans City Park's lone black swan was injured and the five eggs she was tending in her nest were broken this past weekend. 

City Park Police Chief Billy Bayle says one of his officers found the swan Saturday with an injured left ankle. He called a local veterinarian, who is caring for the swan at his clinic with antibiotics and regular change of dressings.

The vet said he thinks the swan should make a full recovery.

A $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for harming the swan and her eggs is being offered by City Park and the New Orleans Museum of Art.
