Swan at Gervasi Vineyard

CANTON, Ohio (WKBN) – A Canton winery is urging drivers to slow down after its beloved swan was hit and killed while crossing the street. 

Giuseppe’s body was found Sunday morning on 55th Street NE. 

According to a post on the winery’s Facebook page, Giuseppe and a female swan, Gina, were starting to look for a perfect nesting site. That may be why they were crossing the busy street.

Since swans mate for life, those at the winery are concerned for Gina’s well-being. 

The winery asked that if anyone knows of a male swan needing a home, to contact Gervasi Vineyard.
