Swan bites man taking selfie at Great Bend Zoo

Swan Selfie

GREAT BEND, Kansas – Beware of the trumpeter swan.

That is Steven Takata’s advice for his brother-in-law who got a little too close for his selfie with the trumpeter swans at the Great Bend Zoo.

Takata says his brother-in-law was trying to get the picture to send to his friend that got attacked by one a year earlier to show him they weren’t that bad.

Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out exactly as he planned.
