Uzhgorod residents are reminded how not to harm the swans
In recent days, Uzhgorod residents have been enthusiastically sharing photos of the beautiful swans who have flown into the city center and are floating along the embankments between the pedestrian and Masaryk bridges.
As many as ten young birds are living on the river and eagerly swim to shore when passers-by approach the edge of the water. Swans do not refuse the food that people offer them. And they offer a lot, because feeding the magnificent birds has become a kind of attraction.
However, good intentions are not always helpful. Swans are wild birds, despite all their credulity. And therefore, ill-considered treats can harm them. This is exactly what the homemade signs we saw along Nezalezhnist embankment remind us about.
We urge everyone to heed the right advice. And let the majestic birds delight us for a long time.
