A man grabbed a live swan by the neck and used it as a weapon to attack his opponent during an altercation by the bank of a river in Munich. Thankfully, the swan escaped unhurt.

A man who grabbed a live swan by the neck and used the bird as a club to beat up another man has been sentenced by a court in Munich, local media reported on Wednesday.

The swan survived the attack unhurt and flew off afterwards. The assailant, named only as Sebastian P., was drunk at the time and was given a two-year suspended sentence.

He and a friend had been drinking on the bank of the river Isar in Munich when they spotted Steven L., a tourist from the eastern German state of Brandenburg, and chose to take offense at the man's eastern accent.

They hurled abuse at him, shouting: "Piss off you eastern pig, they should rebuild the Wall right up to the sky because of you."

After they had finished using the swan to hit the easterner, they went on to hurl bottles and even a barbecue filled with red-hot coals at their victim, who managed to escape with minor injuries.

I'd have thought that a swan would be quite unwieldly. If it was me I'd have been on the lookout for a Mallard duck, or maybe a large Coot.

I wouldn't think that getting hit with a swan would hurt, really...

I'm shocked that they didn't just bust out laughing afterwards.

"dude, fuck you!!"

*man picks up swan*

"what the fuck are you doing with that swan?!"

*swings swan*

"did you just hit me with a fucking swaaan??!!"

*laughter ensues*

- Can you describe it to me?
- It's about, uh, two foot tall. Um, long slender neck.
- Yeah.
- Kind of orange and black bill.
- Anything else?
- Well... it's a swan.

mustve not swung really hard. id imagine the neck would have broke with one good hit.


also, would his sentence have been worse if the swan died?

swans are pretty big. I can imagine it hurting if you were hit with enough force.

I love how no one has mentioned that bottles and a grill with hot coals in it were thrown at the man too.

How often do you hear about east/west german tension? Such a stupid situation.

Some guards at the wall thought someone was trying to sneak out of east berlin when my parents and sister were visiting from frankfurt. They were on a tour that went on the other side of the wall. I'm not sure exactly how the story goes, but it involved and angry german yelling at people on the tour bus to see their tickets. When they saw my sister, who was a baby, they realized this was the extra person they counted and finally calmed down. Angry east germans in the mid 80s sound scary.
