Man Reportedly Arrested After Being Seen Dragging Swan by Neck

A man who was seen dragging a distressed swan by its neck in Caerphilly, Wales, on Sunday, December 3, has been arrested, the BBC reported.

Footage recorded by a passerby, Brandon Ryzy, shows the man gripping the swan by its neck as Ryzy yells at the man to put the swan down. In a Facebook post, Ryzy wrote that the man had claimed the swan attacked his child, but did not have a child with him.

Police said the man was detained for “causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal,” the BBC reported. Credit: Brandon Ryzy via Storyful
