Close on the heels of tourists killing a baby dolphin for taking a selfie in Argentina, another tourist has stifled the neck of a swan to take out a photograph. The bird died instantly. This happened in Macedonia.
The woman tourist from Bulgaria, grabbed the unsuspecting swan by the wing and dragged it onto the pebble-strewn shoreline of Lake Ohrid, south-western Macedonia.
When the unidentified tourist had gotten her selfie snap, she abandoned the swan, which later died on the beach of Lake Ohrid, local media reports.
Despite the visibly distressed swan clearly fighting to be freed, the unidentified woman is smiling for the camera.
Witnesses said the swan ‘remained motionless on the beach after the encounter’, and later died, according to reports.
