A swan that was shot with an arrow on Long Island has made a full recovery and is set to be released into the wild.     

Roy Gross of the Suffolk County SPCA tells Newsday that the bird's recovery is really "a miracle.''     

The wounded swan was found near Indian Island County Park in Riverhead on July 21 and was taken for treatment to the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center in Hampton Bays.     

Gross says the swan was "totally impaled'' by the arrow but has recovered.

The swan will be released near where it was found Tuesday morning.    

The SPCA is offering a reward of $14,750 for any arrests and conviction related to the attack on the swan.
