Don't worry... they don't present any danger to our human swimmers.  I wouldn't try to catch a big one, however.  In the Spring, they will snatch ducklings and goslings from the water whenever they get the chance... keeping their populations under control.  The rest of the year, they eat fish... lying in wait on the bottom.
