Robin Birdsong founded Enchanted Farm Sanctuary when she saw a mother cow suffering after her baby was torn from her. She didn’t just sympathize with the cow, but she completely empathized and resonated with her because she herself felt the same pain and suffering when she lost her precious baby boy Danny. Therefore, it’s always important to Birdsong that people understand how much she loves the animals she rescues as if they were her own babies. The sanctuary exists in honor of her baby boy.

Yet, recently someone stole a black swan named Belladonna Winterspell from Enchanted Farm Sanctuary. Birdsong says she’s been made a bereaved mother again by whoever did this.

Birdsong loves all the animals on her sanctuary, keeps them safe from harm, and rescues them from terrible fates. She didn’t realize that black swans are incredibly valuable until she reported Belladonna’s disappearance to the police. It’s even more devastating that someone may have harmed one of her precious animals or plans to sell them to someone who may harm them.

On the sanctuary’s Instagram account, Birdsong explained that the night of Belladonna’s disappearance, she was woken up by loud noises from the animals as well as the swan’s honking and ran out to find a sedan disappearing. When she found a clump of the swan’s feathers she realized the swan was actually missing.

If you’d like to help, you can donate to the GoFundMe that has been set up to secure Belladonna’s safe return. The funds will also help Enchanted Farm Sanctuary add more security to protect the animals from anything like this ever happening again. They’d install “24-hour video surveillance of the property, additional lighting, fencing & secured night time cottage enclosures.” You can also inform Birdsong or authorities if you know any information about the black swan and who may have taken her. You can also simply help by sharing this story!

Robin Birdsong has grieved enough and we admire all the love, dedication, and care she gives to the animals. We hope Belladonna is safely returned soon!
