An aggressive bird should have attacked the water sports at the Tegernsee lake and keeps for days, vacationers, local press and authorities on their toes.
This is the first summer issue of the year, a new Problem-animal. And this was even before the Easter holidays: A terrorist-Swan is looking for the lake home. Swimmers, kayakers and Stand-up paddlers should have attacked the nasty bird in a Bay in the South of the lake already. The local authorities call on people to avoid the area. "It makes sense that this Bay is not floated," warns one. The Swan was a male and apparently ready for anything.
Oh, God, now what?
Because of the white Swan representatives from the district administrative office of Miesbach, the municipality of Tegernsee and animal rights activists are now come together. The "Swan-special summit," as the local daily newspaper writes. A solution must be found.
What to do with the bird?
A solution could not be found the authorities so far. Despite Swan's Special Summit. What is clear is that "A launch is not a consideration," says the head of the Department of environment of the district office of Miesbach.
Why is the Swan so mad?
The Swan, founded at the Tegernsee, a family. In the breeding season the animals are particularly aggressive and defend their territory. A spokesman for the district administrator's office assumes that the people have been provoked by the aggression of the Swan: "The issue of recreational pressure and the Feeding is, because the Swan lose the Shyness." Stand-up paddlers, for example, the animal is particularly aggressive as the athletes due to the size of the threat.
Not completely off the table seems to be a relocation of the difficult Swan man after the breeding season. But animal rights activists expect that he would return to his partner. Swans are life-long loyalty. A tricky situation that will accompany us for sure until the summer.
