Papercourt Rescue

19th November 2019 – Papercourt Lake Ripley

We were called by the water bailiff who found this swan looking sorry for itself on the bank of the lake. Unfortunately by the time we got there the swan had gone back on to the water but obviously had a problem with its leg. Sally got the canoe out to go and get him but he was not keen to be caught. Sally eventually did get him but had to leave the canoe and ended up waist deep in the water before securing him. He is now back at the Sanctuary being treated for his injured leg, the prognosis is good and Sally is now dried out.
