Happy ending for Ron, the swan

Ron, the swan from Sanctuary Lakes, who was reported to the Wildlife Victoria's Emergency Response Service when a member of the public saw it entagled in a fishing line, had a very happy outcome today. It required hours on the operating table for the hook to be removed, but has been released back to its home now after recovering.

 

Thanks to Hantiye who reported the swan to WV, Erica, the Emergency Response Operator, rescue volunteers Marcus and Elaine, Point Cook Animal Emergency and Melbourne Zoo vets for a fantastic joint effort!! 

 

Here are some lovely pictures of the happy ending.
