These aggressive swans are causing havoc in their local community – locals have even resorted to arming themselves.
Over the past few years, the swans in this park have exhibited a noticeable change in behavior.
Initially living harmoniously with the locals, they have now begun to venture off the river, causing distress and fear among the people.
This shift has led to numerous incidents where swans have attacked both individuals (including children) and vehicles.
To protect themselves and their properties, the locals have resorted to various measures.
Some use water pistols to ward off the swans, while others use garden hoes or shout at them to keep them at bay.
These measures, although temporary, have become a necessary part of daily life for those living near the park.
The swans have not only been a threat to the people but have also wreaked havoc on the local environment.
Gardens that were once well-maintained are now being destroyed, with swans uprooting plants and grass.
Swans can vary greatly in weight depending on the species. Generally, they can weigh between 12 and 30 pounds.
The wingspan of a swan can also be quite impressive, ranging from 6 to 10 feet.
