Michigan Windsurfing

Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan

Any advice on dealing with aggressive mute swans. My daughter was on the paddle board and was charged and harassed for about 10 minutes until she finally figured out  the swan's territory. Did an internet search and learned that a kayaker drowned in chicago from an attack by an unrelenting swan. He wasn't wearing a life jacket. Fortunately I make my daughter wear a life vest. We now know the swans territory, but any advice dealing with an attack would be helpful.

I wonder if someone at the MSU extension might have suggestions.  Sounds like they are just a naturally aggressive bird.
