WATCH: Swan Attacks Man Taking a Selfie

The man ruffled its feathers

A swan “attacked” a man who was just trying to take a selfie with it.

As YouTube user Steven Takata explains in the description of the video, “My brother-in-law got a little too close for his selfie with the trumpeter swans at the Great Bend Zoo in Kansas.” The clip also shows the selfie, which turned out pretty well, making the whole ordeal worth it after all.

It is possible that the swan wanted to make sure it was featured prominently in the shot, given it’s North America’s largest waterfowl.
