Sad Swan News

To all those who saw our swan post earlier this week. We are very sorry to share that our swan friend did not make it.

Here is the Società Protezione Animali Bellinzona pet-ambulance volunteer helping the swan.

Several of you expressed concern about the way the swan was not holding his neck upright -- and that he also let someone touch him. The volunteer was very concerned, too.

The pet-ambulance volunteer wrote us to let us know that the vet helped the swan fly over the Rainbow Bridge. Without the help of the volunteers, our swan friend would surely have died slowly in the water.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. We really appreciate it.


  1. Oh that's so sad. Good bye Mr. Swan, I feel sorry that you had to go to this bridge.

  2. Poor injured Mr Swan. Sad news but we 'preciate you letting us know.

  3. Thanks, we didn't think he'd make it, but at least he wasn't left to suffer..... You tried.

  4. I'm so glad you were able to ease his suffering and get him safely, and quickly to the Bridge.

    That is sad. But he was helped with gentle care, and for that we are grateful. Swim happy and free now...

  6. Oh Tootsie, we are truly sorry to read about the beautiful swan. Thank goodness the SPAB people were able to rescue him from the water to try and get him some help. What a great organization!
