Man Pushed Into Water For Stopping Woman From Kicking Swan:
Mr Phillips told Daily Mail, "I have been living on the water for many years so you get to know the ins and outs of the birds' lives. Swans are very territorial and I learnt a few years ago that when they fight, they fight to the death. 'I've tried to separate them in the past and you just can't and it's horrible to watch but it's just nature. Everybody was watching the swans and I was trying to tell families with young children to keep their kids away when these punks came round the corner throwing bottles, cans, anything they could find to try and separate the swans."
The RSPCA has also launched an investigation into the incident. They tweeted, "If anyone has further information on these individuals, please contact us on 0300 1234 999". A Metropolitan Police spokesperson reportedly said that no arrests have been made but an enquiry is being carried out.
