Swannie, a beloved animal at a popular Myrtle Beach campground is recovering after being hit intentionally by a golf cart passenger, according to the campground.

On Wednesday night, Mama Swan, also known as Swannie, was harassed and then hit by someone at Ocean Lakes Campground.

The swan was taken to the Carolina Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Charleston in critical condition.

On Facebook, the center posted the following update:

Although she is facing such a challenging situation, she is doing well. We have talked to several veterinarians, and one of them seems promising as far as taking on this difficult challenge. When I clean her cage or move her to the walker or water to relieve some of the strain on her leg, she doesn’t complain. Hopefully, they will give us a definitive answer tomorrow. Please pray that they will take a chance to help her.”

A person has been banned from the campground after the campground identified the person responsible for injuring the swan.

It was made clear in the Facebook post that we do not tolerate such acts of violence. We enacted a new policy earlier this year that states, “Animal cruelty, harassment, molestation, torture, or injury will not be tolerated.” The policy applies to all wildlife, including waterfowl, nests, and eggs. Please do not catch, take, or sell wildlife. Please do not kill our fish, which are caught and released.”
