The swan attacks and KILLS a cocker spaniel while it went for a swim in a pond in Dublin

  • The bird attacked the dog with & # 39; one wing and then the other & # 39; in the Irish capital
  • A witness said he was trying to distract the attacking swan, but in vain
  • The dog's owner was said to be so upset that he dropped his phone into the pond

A family dog ​​was killed by a swan while swimming in a duck pond in an Irish park.

The bird attacked the pet with its wings, hit the dog & # 39; with one wing and then the other & # 39; in Bushy Park in Dublin.

The swan had reportedly noticed the cocker spaniel in the water and had broken away from where he swam with his fellow swans and juveniles to confront the dog.

A man who saw what was happening tried to distract the swan, but in vain, the Irish Times reported.

He told the newspaper: & The poor dog didn't know what was going on and swam straight for the swan.

Describing the attack, he said: & That surprised the poor thing. Three or four hits and she was gone.

The swan had taken action to protect his young swans, he said.

The owner also shouted from the other end of the pond to get the dog's attention, the witness recalled.

After his efforts proved fruitless, the destroyed owner also dropped his phone into the pond, he said.

A park ranger said he had never heard of anything like that happening before.

British charity The Swan Sanctuary says that the wings of the birds could theoretically be powerful enough to break a man's arm.

& # 39; In reality, it is almost unheard of and is never used as a form of attack because swans are a defending bird, & they explain.

& # 39; The only time they become aggressive is when they protect their breeding grounds or juveniles when they scare away the invaders, whether they are other swans, geese or people who get too close. & # 39;
