This afternoon.

Bushy Park, Terenure, Dublin 6.

Warning signs to canines and their owners from Dublin City Council after a swan attacked and killed a dog at the park’s duck pond on Saturday of last week.

The Cocker Spaniel was swimming near a group of swans and cygnets when one of the adult swans completely freaked out and used its wings to beat the dog to death.

The swan was described as white-feathered, beautiful with an elegant neck and deceptively poetic wingspan.

The slaying may have been a revenge after a dog mauled a swan to death in Skerries, north county Dublin last year.
