NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Police in the U.K. came upon a swan that apparently mistook soggy grassland for a body of water. Video of an officer rescuing the feisty swan has gone viral. It was posted by the Thames Valley Police's road unit last week. The reaction on social media has been humorous.
Comments on the photo posted on Twitter include:
"Well done officers (you quack me up.)"
"I suppose it was its 'Swan Song.'"
"Well done that cop, I've caught a swan & it's difficult to do whilst retaining any dignity. Fair effort. "
