Why don't people eat swans?
I'm not sure whether this is the right place to ask but I'm curious.
Here in central Europe people eat meat from various birds: chicken, ducks, sometimes even geese. However, I don't remember encountering anyone eating a swan. So I was wondering about the reason. Does anybody know?
A few guesses: Are swans too difficult to keep? Or is the meat not tasty? Or is it because of a similar feeling that prevents us from eating dogs?
Has it always been so? Is it different in other cultures?
