In the irrigation canal beside the rice field in Yotsukaido City, Chiba Prefecture, two swan birds could not come out from last month, and local residents were worried, but on the 11th, it was confirmed that they were outside and escaped on their own. It is believed that it was done.
In Ueno, Yotsukaido City, two swans have entered the irrigation canal, which is about 60 cm wide and about 1 meter deep, on the side of the rice field since last month, and it was impossible to take off because the wings could not be spread.
According to local residents, around 10 am on the 11th, it was confirmed that these two swans were in a rice field about 80 meters away from where they used to be.
It is believed that the swans moved through the irrigation canal and escaped on their own, as people who came to see the swans gathered around the area on the 11th.
A man in his 70s who lives nearby said, "I come to see it every day, but I saw it outside for the first time. I couldn't spread my wings because the irrigation canal was narrow, but I'm really glad I got out." I'm talking to you.
On the other hand, Chiba Prefecture is calling on swans to stay away from the swan, saying that there is a risk of spreading the infection when people approach wild birds amid a series of bird flu outbreaks in the prefecture.
