Wie der Vater, so der Sohn

Das ist der aggressivste Schwan der Welt. Aber er kann nichts dafür, es liegt in seinen Genen

Auf dem Fluss Cam im englischen Cambridge treibt ein Schwan sein Unwesen. Grundlos greift er Böötler und gar Artgenossen an. Wenn Ihnen die Geschichte bekannt vorkommt, liegt es daran, dass Mr. Asbo, der Vater des gefiederten Unholdes, bereits 2010 für die gleichen Schlagzeilen sorgte.

Wie der Vater, so der Sohn

Nun also wiederholt sich die Geschichte. Denn Mr. Asbos Sohn, Asboy genannt, geht genau so radikal gegen Mensch und Tier vor, wie sein Vater. Er attackiert alles, was ihm in den Weg kommt, das kann auch mal eine Kuh sein.

Asboy the swan is scared off by a young bullock
Swan nicknamed 'Asboy' attacks other animals, people and boats near River Cam, Cambridge, Britain - 14 Oct 2013
The son of vicious swan Mr Asbo has been attacking punters and birds on the River Cam in Cambridge - but was put in his place when he tried to take on a cow. The bird, who has been nicknamed Asboy, appears to be following in his father's footsteps by terrorising rowers and punters on the famous Backs in the university city. His dad, Mr Asbo, was moved to a secret location by the river authorities last year after he attacked numerous rowers, biting their arms and legs. Now residents fear he has been replaced by Asboy, who has moved upstream and is now targeting tourists in punts. Recently, tourists screamed in horror as they saw him viciously attack another swan, grabbing it by the neck with his beak. Asboy tried to drown the other swan, holding its neck under the water for about 15 seconds, then when it wriggled free he sat on it. The swan only escaped when its partner came to the rescue.

Wenn Asboy allerdings nicht gerade angreift, sieht er eigentlich ganz nett aus:

Um dann aber das Maul aufzureissen und einen zu erschrecken.

Kräääääääähh! (Oder wie machen Schwäne eigentlich?)

The son of vicious swan Mr Asbo is following in his father's footsteps by terrorising punters on the River Cam in Cambridge during the peak summer season. The feathered fiend, who has been nicknamed Asboy, is targeting terrified tourists as they row and punt on the famous Backs in the university city. His dad, Mr Asbo, was moved to a secret location by the river authorities two years ago and had his wings clipped to stop him returning after he repeatedly attacked and bit rowers. Now he has been replaced by Asboy, who rules the roost on the River Cam by swimming up and down pecking at punters and flying into families on the waterway. The swan attacks any boat which gets too close, including canoes and rowing boats.

Seinen Heimatfluss will Asboy mit niemandem teilen. 

Weg da!

A vicious swan has been nicknamed 'Mr Asbo' after capsizing boats and attacking rowers on a city river. Rowers are now being warned to stay away from the bad-tempered bird, which has been snapping and hissing at rowers who get too near. The angry bird is part of a nesting pair and is very protective of his nest.

Seinem Vater hat damals gar die Todesstrafe gedroht. Er musste sein Leben aber dann doch nicht lassen, sondern wurde an einen unbekannten Ort gebracht.

Nicht einmal seine eigenen Artgenossen duldet Asboy
