Injured swan in a forest near Orlovac
Via the Green Phone of Pan, Association for Environment Nature and Protection, we received a report on wounded swan in a forest near Orlovac.
We informed the Centre 112 on the finding of the injured swan and the Public Institution for the Management of Protected Nature Areas in the area of Karlovac County - Natura Viva.
The wounds of the injured swan have been healed by dr.vet.med. Mladen Bulat from Karlovac who was informed thereof by the Centre 112. According to the veterinarian Bulat, visibly exhausted swan had an injured leg from which he removed a round bullet.
After the treatment, the swan remained in the shelter, and as soon as his situation was stable he was released on Korana among other swans. The perpetrator who shot this beautiful bird from a shotgun is unfortunately still unknown.
