A Swan's Swan Song

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. No animals were harmed in the making of this news story. Police in Cheshire, England, received a disturbing call - someone had beheaded a swan. Police investigated, carefully approaching the scene where they discovered there was a headless swan, a plastic headless swan - a driver mistook it for the real thing. So it was not an act of animal cruelty, although it may have been an act similar to road rage - call it lawn ornament rage? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
