Ask the Swan Specialist
Date: 24 July 2013
We have a pair of mute swans in our pound and their only surviving cygnet is about 2 1/2 months old. We found him wrapped in fishing wire and with a hook in his neck. Took him to emergency were they have been treating him for about a week. Tomorrow he will be released. That will make about a week that he was away from his parents. They look for him every day but I was wondering if they will accept him back when we release him tomorrow. Also I heard that you should reunite them on land in case they don't.
