Wild cygnet saved from a tangle of fishing line

Posted by CDoyle on 18/12/2019

Beale Wildlife Park is more than a collection of animals who live in our enclosures. We are also home to a variety of wild animals who make the wider estate their home.

This morning our Director, Stephen McKeown, noticed that one of the cygnets had fishing line attached to its mouth. A quick call to the RSPCA and an expert from @swan_support arrived to check the cygnet out. As expected with swans, the rest of the group were nearby keeping an eye on the situation.

In the end they all enjoyed a good feed and swam away happy. Thank you to all at www.swansupport.org.uk.

The Park is now closed for the winter. Please keep an eye on our website news section and via our social media sites for updates on the animals.
