Swan gets it in the neck

Goldsworth Park Woking – 16th December 2018

Warning some people may find the pictures disturbing.

Sally was called out to a swan at the lake in Goldsworth Park after reports of a swan with blood on its neck. She attended and found he had a large pike hook embedded in his neck which had cut him. Fortunately the damage looked worse than it actually was and the hook was soon removed and treated. He is well enough to go back to the park today (18th December) so he can be with the rest of the small flock.
