Our news reporter was on hand when a rescued black swan was well enough to be released back into its home.
Lost fishing hooks, fishing line along with any litter can harm birds
and other wildlife.
A sick black swan was seen at Sanctuary Lakes with fishing line hanging
out of its bill. After a major effort to catch the swan it was taken to the zoo
for examination. The zoo vet operated on this swan to remove three fish
hooks and a bundle of fishing line.
