Swan notorious for attacking tourists in the English river mysteriously disappears

Some believe that the swan, which has earned the nickname well Asboy and Trevor, was taken by the river the officials after his outbursts.


An aggressive swan named “Asboy” after he attacked rowers in a popular tourist spot has mysteriously disappeared from its normal riverside haunt.

The cob — a male swan — are often seen pecking at the people, the attack on the tourists, eating sandwiches, and even trying to steal purses on a river in Cambridge, England.

But the younger, named for the Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) issued in the united kingdom to disruptive persons, is believed to have been secretly removed from the River Cam due to his aggressiveness.

The noisy swan was seen picking up in the people, the attack on the tourists, eating sandwiches, and even try to steal handbags.



Natural England has been contacted regarding the celebrity swan ‘ s well-being, but the government remains tight-lipped as to his fate.

Another swan known as Mr. Asbo — believed to be Asboy the “grandfather” — was moved to a secret location by the river authorities six years ago for the same behavior. The officials reportedly moved him 60 miles away after he repeatedly targeted rowers of Cambridge, and had his wings clipped to prevent him from returning.

“Asboy the swan — or Trevor as he’s known locally — has a serious reputation in Cambridge for overly aggressive when he is loaded on the bread of the tourists,” said Sam Matthews, 37, of the Traditional Punting Company.

“He has also seemed to develop a trust-fund radar, as his favorite targets are the University of Cambridge and the rowers.

A swan believed to be Asboy “grandpa” was removed six years ago for exhibiting similar behavior.


“He is a threat, but he is a part of the city, so we embrace his individuality.”


A spokeswoman for the Wildlife Trust, explained the reasons why Asboy may be aggressive with the public.

“Swans, like all other birds, wild animals, and when sometimes they behave as one, it’s just because they follow their instincts,” she said.

The theme music of “Jaws.”


Natural England, a non-departmental public body in the United Kingdom, it often helps to deal with issues relating to the swans, and earlier helped with the removal of Mr Asbo six years ago.

“The River Conservancy helped to be removed Mr. The team to a location; Natural England only the license to remove him,” said a spokeswoman for Natural England.
