Police Hunting For Man Who Told His Dog To Attack Swans In Victoria

Police are hunting for a man who allegedly encouraged his dog to attack a bunch of swans on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.

A woman who was trying to enjoy a stroll on the Sorrento Front Beach has taken to Facebook to try and identify the man and his mate after hearing him rev up the pet.

She wrote on the social media site: "These MORONS walked onto the foreshore in Sorrento and the guy on the left said to his mate on the right 'watch this'.

"He then proceeded to let his very excited dog off the leash and said 'sick em'. There was a group of approximately 20 black swans swimming, feeding in the shallows the dog grabbed a swan and began to shake it vigorously.

"I screamed and swore at him to call dog off, he laughed! My husband ran into the water to try and release swan from dog's mouth, [the] guy just stood on beach.

"Swan injured and had to be carried out of water and held until police arrived. These 2 GUTLESS MORONS kept walking very quickly towards Sorrento yacht club."

Police attended the scene and wrapped the swan in a towel and transported it to a shelter to be assessed by a vet.

They're now turning their attention to the man who encouraged his dog to attack.
