Sick thugs spear young swan with a wooden stake

Posted on 3:28 PM by Sameer Shah

A young swan was seriously injured when thugs stabbed it through the wing with a wooden stake.

The cygnet was found speared by the 2m weapon in Boreham, Essex, yesterday.

Dog-walker Wendy Palmer, who discovered the swan, dialled 999.

Minutes later 10 Essex fire officers and RSPCA workers arrived to help the ailing bird.

Passer-by Stephen Huntley, who captured the rescue on camera, said: "It looked like someone had deliberately attacked the bird with the stick - it was no accident. The poor creature looked in great distress."

The swan is now being cared for by the RSPCA.
