Trump: No Defense for Killing Swan

Donald Trump has swung back at a

golfer who allegedly clubbed an exotic black swan to death.

The golfer, who was playing at the $40 million Trump International Golf Club two weeks ago as the guest of a member, has been banned from all of Trump's properties worldwide.

"I spoke with the member and relayed to him that his guest is not to set foot on any of my properties again," Trump said. "I don't care if it was self-defense or not. The actions seemed excessive."

Guest Cyril Wagner told investigators he killed the 50-pound bird in self-defense with one swing. One club member said the swan had exhibited aggressive behavior in the past.

The swan was one of four given Trump by a friend. One of them was killed earlier by an alligator.
