LAKE OHRID, Macedonia – A tourist is under fire after dragging a swan out of the water and leaving it to die just so that she could take a picture with the bird.

The Sun says the unidentified woman, reportedly from Bulgaria, was spotted on the shores of Lake Ohrid in Macedonia.

According to witnesses, the woman grabbed the swan and struggled with it while attempting to take the picture.

The swans in this particular area are used to people visiting the lake, but are usually left undisturbed.

The report says that once the woman was done taking photos with the swan, she dumped it on the ground and left it to die.
