Swans are scary.

They look at you with their heads turned to the side - stare for a while, then flap their wings to intimidate. They dive under the water, come up, and make snorting noises like a pig!

Oh, and if you're eating a bagel, they CHASE YOU AND POKE THEIR BEAKS INTO YOUR ANKLES! Chat Icon

I was down in Northport this morning, on one of those little floatation things with benches on it - I was CHASED by 2 swans, and they were ANGRY!

Hi, my name is Nicole, and I am now scared of swans. Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

YES! Chat Icon Well, I'm not sure if actual spit came out, but it was like a cat spitting--loud scary noises with their tongues sticking out!

I just called FH and told him, and now he thinks I'm certifiably looney.

Re: Swans are scary.

When I was a kid we were at some garden. My dad (who is not a small man) was walking across this stone path that led across the pond. All of the sudden this swan charged towards him and got him on the ankle and calf. My dad tumbled off the path into the water (it was shallow enogh for him to stand) where the swan continued to chase my dad. He finally made it out onto the shore. The swan contiuned to yell and look at him. We(except my dad) all continued to laugh like crazy!!!! I guess that the swan had a nest on one of the stones further up and was protecting her eggs.

Re: Swans are scary.

They are nasty! They bite and can do a lot of damage if they hit you with their wings.

One of my owners, was canoeing this summer and one jumped on in his boat and went after him.

There was a pond with a swan at one of the wineries DH and I visited upstate, and there was a sign posted near the pond which said "Warning: Swan is NOT Friendly"

Guess it's the species, or breed, or whatever the hell it's called. Chat Icon
