Justice for Swan Killed by Tourist

Target: Mrs. Oliver Spasovski, Minister of Internal Affairs of Macedonia

Goal: Pursue charges against tourist who killed swan for the sake of a picture with it.

A tourist recently visited Lake Ohrid in Macedonia where she allegedly dragged a struggling swan across rocks in order to take a photograph with it. Pictures featuring the tourist and this swan capture the woman’s grip on one of the swan’s wings and one photo even shows her smiling while securing a tight grip on the animal.

The tourist reportedly saw the swan near the water, wanted a particular picture with it, and took it upon herself to capture the swan and force it to pose with her. The swan did not initially react negatively to the woman, since swans in this area are used to some sort of interaction with tourists. When she grabbed the wing and began to pull it along the rocks, the swan reacted with a struggle to get free. Photos document the swan’s unsuccessful attempts to free itself. After the woman got her use out of the animal, she left it motionless on the gravelly shore.

This incident occurred a mere two weeks after tourists killed a dolphin by passing it around for pictures as it squirmed and struggled. We cannot continue to allow these selfish and senseless acts to become normal and go unpunished. Please sign this petition urging authorities to pursue this criminal and charge her accordingly.


Dear Mr. Spasovski,

I am writing this letter to express my concern and disappointment regarding the recent who allegedly caused the death of a swan after forcing it to be the centerpiece for her photo. As a visitor to your country, this woman communicated disrespect when she disregarded the well-being of your wildlife and decided to drag a swan across the rocks carelessly for a pointless picture.

As you may know, this woman’s face can be seen in one of the photos, which should make it easy for her to be found. We must not let her get away with such a selfish and reckless actshe knew what she was doing and she was happy to be doing it, as we can witness her smiling in the pictures.

In order to preserve the animals we still have left in our ecosystem, we will need to more strictly enforce penalties against perpetrators since people are seemingly more desensitized to harming animals in this modern age. Please seek out this woman and pursue charges against her for the disrespectful and senseless act that she committed.

  1. That happened in FYROM not Macedonia.
    Macedonia is a region of Greece.

    people like this are too selfish to live.

  3. What’s wrong with a lot of people nowadays? So desperate to get a good photo/selfie that they are willing to risk the safety of other innocent beings and even themselves to do that… Crazy!!!

  4. Nature treats back now ? bastards
    Take responsibility for your cruelty
    Live your nightmare now ?
    Because I am a Guardian for the animals ?

  5. I would also like to know why this swan has had its wings clipped back to a significant (and cruel) degree. This poor creature has gone through torture twice. This woman is evidently a piece of **** who needs to be reminded that she SHARES this world with other living beings and has no right to infringe on THEIR rights. As for the concurrent dolphin story, at least one witness has said that several dolphins washed up and were either dead or dying on the beach. The tourists tried to save them but most were too far gone. The image of the dead dolphin may not be the one alive in the photo. By the way, who took the photos of the swan and the woman? Didn’t they make any attempt to get the poor thing back into the water?

    How did that woman from hell kill these animals so easily? It’s frightening to think that a serial killer, like her, is on the loose, just killing animals that are easier prey than humans. Please send a strong message that this is not acceptable at all!
