Swans are being attacked by dogs

Queen’s Swan Marker David Barber says that swans on the Thames have suffered from “mindless vandalism”.

He told The Times: “It is most regrettable that swans and cygnets suffer serious injury or even death as a result of mindless vandalism, dog attacks and injuries sustained by ingesting or being caught in abandoned fishing tackle.”

Swan Upping this year is from  Monday 15 July starting at Sunbury and finishing on Friday 19 July at Abingdon.
