Dog savages swan
AN injured swan is likely to have to be put down after being attacked by a dog at Lostwithiel.
A member of the public called the RSPCA after seeing the bird in the river at Coulson Park on Monday afternoon.
It was unable to stand, and the witness thought it had been attacked by geese.
An RSPCA inspector called on the fire service as they had access to a boat and a 4x4 vehicle. The swan was recovered and taken to a local vet, who said the injuries were consistent with a dog attack.
