From the desk of ghosttruck.

Maybe don't let your dog swim in a pond that has a swan family in residence.

A dog was reportedly killed in Ireland on Saturday by a swan who beat the pet to death with its wings.

The cocker spaniel was swimming near a group of swans and their offspring, called cygnets, in a pond at Bush Park in Dublin, The Irish Times reported. One of the swansbroke away, and apparently aimed for the dog just before 11 a.m.

“We started screaming at the swan, trying to distract it,” a man who was feeding ducks nearby said. “The poor dog didn’t realize what was going on and swam straight for the swan.”

The man told the news outlet the swan lifted up its wings and attacked the dog "with one wing and then the other."

The dog's owner was extremely distraught, according to the witness and a park ranger. The dog's body was reportedly removed from the pond using a paddle boat and net.

I dont see why people are going after the pet owner. What dog owner hasnt let their little dipshit swim around and act a fool, chase small rodents like rabbits or disgusting birds like ducks/geese/etc.

From the sounds of things i assume the dog drowned? That's the only issue i think is letting your dog swim far out enoug hon its own that youre not there to get/save it if need be. Then again, some dogs are amazing swimmers. If the owner knew their dog to be more tan capable, even that is forgivable i think.

I doubt the swan beat it to death. More like stunned the dog and pushed under water which then drowned.
It's a bird dog, what did they think would happen if it saw a group of birds? Maybe the owner will train the next dog to return when called.
