Swan with tin can stuck to beak being rescued

A swan was spotted with a tin can stuck to its beak in Urriðaholt, a suburb of Reykjavik. People are asked not to try to rescue the swan themselves as it is scared and will fly away and to wait for professionals as a rescue operation is underway. 

The swan is at the Urriðakotsvatn and its beak has been stuck in the can for two weeks, much to the concern of locals. Now the municipality of Garðabær has called out a vet and a nature conservation expert. 

According to mbl.is volunteers have offered help and rubber dinghies to get to the bird.
