As a Lincoln Police investigator says, “We assume this is purely intentional.
As well as how the sock fits and how far it is pulled down the swan's neck.
We don't think it was an accident.
The swan could have suffocated or starved to death ”.
Swan cruelty to animals would have had bad consequences for the offspring
Police are hoping for help from citizens who saw potential suspects near the swan and pond on May 2nd.
A spokeswoman for an animal welfare agency also confirmed the police's suspicions: "The consequences of this senseless prank could have resulted in this swan suffering for a long period of time and ultimately dying."
Further effects are also described.
Since it is breeding time, the swan's young would have suffered from the death of the big swan.
Experts from Yorkshire Swan Rescue Hospital rescued the animal on Wednesday.
The people of Lincoln suffer with the swan: "The poor animal, it amazes me that they got close enough".
“Human waste,” is how one woman sums up the act.
“What's wrong with the people?” Or “Hopefully they'll get caught,” it says in many comments.
“Oh god, that's amazing!
How can something like that happen to a swan? ”Someone asks the group.
Only recently a peacock was stolen in Saarland.

The rare animal called Romeo is worth up to 200 euros.
