A SWAN puts a nuisance dog in its place during a vicious showdown in a lake.

The bird reared up to see off the pest which chased cygnets in Swindon, Wilts.

The dog retreated but witness Shohini Dutta said: “To be honest, I’ve never seen anything like this before. It was a first time for me.

“My heart was in my mouth. It was so quick.

“The dog was taken aback because the swan was like an eagle, swooping over him and trying to chase him out.

“This is breeding season and the swans can turn really ferocious during nesting times.

“The swan then went back to his nest to check on his partner and the eggs. The female was on the nest guarding the eggs.

“The owners looked stunned and flabbergasted. They didn’t know what was going on.

“Dog owners should really keep their dogs on the lead at all times, especially when near to wildlife or lakes.

“It’s all animal behaviour – you can never predict what will happen.”
