32 swans perished in lake

AN investigation is under way after 32 swans were found dead in Donegal.

The dead animals were recovered from New Lake in Dunfanaghy over the weekend by conservation rangers.

It is understood that some of the birds were dead for a considerable period of time, while one had to be put down.

Water samples have been taken from the lake and the Department of Agriculture are testing the swans to determine the cause of death.
