Sad news: Rupert the black swan, a Newport fixture for 20 plus years, was found dead yesterday after being run over by a Harbor Patrol boat on it's way to a crime scene. RIP Rupert :(

That is truly sad news, Rupert was an icon in NB, and very entertaining to watch as the tourists tried to feed him, he'd bite them on the hand! RIP Rupert!!

I've been looking for Rupert when on the water for years, I've always enjoyed my Rupert sightings. I felt bad for him when Pearl died. He was kind of like the Walter Matthau of birds, crabby as heck but we all liked him.

My kids and I fish the harbor most every weekend in our 12ft skiff.
We would see him nearly every time, cruising through the moorings. He will be missed, like many of the other things that are quickly disappearing in Newport.(Fun Zone)
