HISSING SID SENT TO GALLOWS HILL
Our pal Elf Hellion sent us this story of an evil Swan.
“An aggressive swan known as “Hissing Sid” has been evicted from his riverbank home and moved to Gallows Hill Quarry almost 40 miles away after a series of attacks including one that almost caused a teenage girl to drown. The vicious bird used his powerful 7ft long wings to attack hundreds of rowers and canoeists on the River Chelmer in Chelmsford, Essex, his home for the past two decades. The 22lb swan would patrol the busy river terrorising users on a daily basis, before attempting to drown them with his flapping wings or pecking holes in boats. But the swan’s violent behaviour became progressively worse over the past year, escalating in March when he attacked a 13-year-old girl. The teenager, who was not named, almost drowned after the ferocious swan capsized her canoe using its long wings. The incident forced locals to seek expert help to stop the bird, which enjoys protection from the Queen.” (Click here for more)
