- A swan has reportedly died of “heartbreak” after teens destroyed her nest and smashed her unhatched eggs.
- Meanwhile, the male swan has been “driven away by the stress.”
- The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are now conducting investigations and said “swans, their nests, and their eggs” are under protection of existing laws.
A female swan in Manchester Canal in Kearsley, UK has reportedly died of a “broken heart” after teenage boys smashed her eggs and destroyed her nest. In an article by the Manchester Evening News, we learn that the youngsters were seen throwing rocks and bricks, “aiming for the island where the swans had left their eggs.” Out of the six unhatched cygnets, only three managed to survive the incident.
According to wildlife advocates, they have been monitoring the swans and the nest. The male swan had left two weeks ago and may have done that because of the stress. Meanwhile, the other surviving eggs had gone missing and only one has been left.
Eventually, they also found the female swan’s lifeless body.
In an interview, wildlife activist Sam Woodrow said the animal “probably died of a broken heart as she had a partner for life and he was driven away by stress.”
Netizens couldn’t help but feel bad about the story when it later went viral online.
In the All About Bolton Facebook group, Michael James Mason also mentioned that the female swan had also been “harassed” by dogs, a duck, and a moor hen.
“Her mate left her on her own and sadly I was informed this morning she was found slumped in her nest dead. Just feel like crying as I have followed her progress for about 12 weeks,” he added.
Regarding the cause of the swan’s death, Michael lamented:
“To be honest I think it was a broken heart.”
Meanwhile, a Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals spokesperson said they are currently conducting investigations to learn more about the incident.
“Swans, their nests and their eggs are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981,” they likewise emphasized.
