One swan parent killed
Date: 6 June 2016

On the 4th of June 2016, in The Hague, The Netherlands, the mother swan was killed by a car on a parking lot nearby a field hockey club. The father swan and three little baby swans were standing by when a cyclist found them. So sad.

What happens to this swan family without the mother swan? This question keeps haunting me as I know that swans are partners for life. I feel so sad about this.

The local papers wrote about it and it was posted on Facebook; the police is looking for links to the driver who killed the swan.

Looking forward to hearing from you, even if it is for my own information.

Thank you!

Animal lover,
