Young Swan Appears To Commit Suicide After Seeing Mother Dead (Photos)
A Chinese woman has captured what seems to be a swan committing suicide.
Floating nearby was a dead swan, which could have been its mother because Hsiao said it looked much older.
The younger bird then appeared drowned itself.
After calling and flapping its wings, it then stuck its head in the water and I thought it had calmed down, but then I realized it was keeping its head in the water. Minutes later, it was dead.
The reality of animal suicide remains a mystery in the scientific community, but many creatures from dogs to ducks have been witnessed dying seemingly intentionally.
One of the first cases surfaced in 1855 when a dog jumped into a body of water in London, repeating the act every time it was rescued by a human.
Bystanders eventually concluded that the dog wanted to die and let it drown.
