The British police are looking for people who have seen who have pulled a stocking over the head of a swan.
The animal was found in a water in Lincoln. According to local authorities, this has been a planned area. The stocking fits snugly and is pulled down far over the neck. “Without intervention, the animal would have had a long suffering, inevitably resulting in death, be it by suffocation or hunger,” said the police or Facebook.
According to a British animal welfare spokesman, it goes even further than just bullying swan. “It is the season for nests and young animals. This could not only have meant the end of the adult swan, but possibly also of any dependent offspring.”
Police and animal protection hope that witnesses report to the animals abuse. “For this must not pass unpunished.”
