(Newser) – Another reason humans really suck sometimes: A woman from Bulgaria, part of a large tourist group, dragged a swan from a lake in Macedonia to snap a selfie with it and ended up killing the animal, per the New York Daily News. Photos obtained by Metro show the woman smiling while holding the bird by one wing on the shoreline of Lake Ohrid, near the Albanian border. The swan "remained motionless after the encounter" and died, reports MINA. It isn't clear if police are investigating. (Two peacocks and a baby dolphin also died for selfies.)
