Swan Lake From Hell
Updated: Tue, May 08 07:37 AM EDT
OSLO, Norway (Reuters) - A Norwegian swan named Oscar, famous for his short temper, attacked an elderly woman, biting her bottom, dragging her into a lake and ducking her twice before letting go.
"Oscar came flying from across the other side of the lake and bit me in the buttocks before dragging me about five meters (yards) into the water and under," Kerstin Arbsved told Reuters Monday.
"He only let me go when my daughter started to throw rocks."
Arbsved said the attack happened as she, her daughter and three small grandchildren were strolling in a nature reserve near the southwestern city Kristiansand Saturday.
Police and medical staff were quickly on the scene and Oscar was immediately put down by police.
Arbsved spent the night in a hospital.
