A black swan spotted in Croatia is said to be one of the rare finds in the country in the last 50 years.
The black swan was spotted near Sisak in central Croatia by a ranger working for Croatian Forests (Hrvatske šume) who posted the finding on their Facebook page on Thursday.
– During a tour of the grounds, ranger Drago Domazetović from the Sunja forestry, GJ Lonja ranger, among the multitude of white swans carefreely enjoying themselves on the sun-bathed lake next to the nearby forest, noticed an unusual black phenomenon. Upon the arrival of experts, it was determined that it was a black swan – Croatian Forests said, before adding.
Black swans are normally found in Australia, and there are some in zoos in our country, but this is one of the most unusual finds in Croatia in the last 50 years. The black swan is described as a rare species for Croatia and Europe. Wherever he came from, we hope that the new society will accept him with joy.
Daily 24sata contacted the director of the Zagreb Zoo, Damir Skok, for more information about the black swan.
– Normally they live in Australia, but there are plenty of people in Europe who raise all kinds of things. It must be from someone’s breeding in Europe, so it escaped. People breed birds all the time, and they frequently escape. Don’t worry, he didn’t escape from the Zagreb Zoo, Skok said.
