A British animal safety group is in search of a lady accused of straddling a swan and strangling it to dying in a public park.
The Royal Society for the Safety of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) is investigating the unusual dying after witness testimony claims a lady attacked the fowl Thursday at Chester-le-Road Riverside Park in Durham County.
A walker known as police and the animal welfare charity at round 7:00 p.m. after reportedly seeing the suspect “wring” the fowl’s neck, Mirror On-line reported.
“Police have been initially known as by a member of the general public who noticed a lady seize the swan, straddle the fowl and wring its neck,” RSPCA Inspector Trevor Walker informed the outlet.
“Officers attended the scene the place they discovered the grownup swan lifeless — with a comfortable tissue harm in step with being strangled.”
Walker mentioned that two girls in reference to the incident have been spoken to by authorities.
Swans are protected below the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and any violation of that legislation may end in as much as six months in jail or as much as about $6,00zero in fines.
