Two swans have been found decapitated in Exeter.
Police say the death of one of the birds "appears to have been a deliberate act."
Devon and Cornwall police received a call from a member of the public who had seen the body of a swan on the footbridge near to Samuel Jones Pub, on the Quay in Exeter on Wednesday.
Environmental Health attended to collect the animal who raised concerns over how the swan had died.
Exeter City Council says a second decapitated swan was brought to their canal office.
