DAVENPORT (AP) -

 Wildlife officials say two Iowa men are facing charges after shooting protected trumpeter swans.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says the swans were shot Saturday morning at the Princeton Wildlife Area in Scott County.

One swan died while the other was wounded.

Authorities say Levi Young of Davenport and Kyle Munson of Eldridge shot the swans while they were waterfowl hunting.

Both men are 25.

Both men were charged with unlawfully killing a protected animal and several other related charges.

Authorities also seized three shotguns, a boat, motor and trailer.
