bennett Posted February 4 Share Posted February 4 Police 'arrest' swan after car crash It's about two-feet tall, long slender neck, kinda orange and black bill Police recreated scenes from Hot Fuzz by 'arresting' a swan before taking it away in the back of a cop car. The image shows the stricken bird being taken 'prisoner' after it caused chaos while waddling around a busy road. Police say it was pulled from a nearby harbour in Plymouth, Devon, by a drunken male before being involved in a collision on Mutley Plain. After its ride in the back of the liveried vehicle to vets, the swan was checked over and is now being nursed back to full health. In an official statement, Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police were called at 6.20pm yesterday to Mutley Plain following reports that a swan had been removed from the harbour by a man, who had left the area prior to police arrival. It was reported that the swan had possibly been hit by a vehicle. Members of the public had wrapped a blanket around it and gave it a kitkat. It was taken to the vets by officers and left in their care. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
