The Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick from Laois has come to the rescue of a swan in Dublin.
The Ballyfin native posted a video and explanation of what happened on his facebook page today.
"Enroute to the next interview in Dublin this afternoon and we came across this poor confused fella who was stuck in the middle of the main road with cars all around.
"Having experienced many swan rescues down the years I knew I could help... So I jumped out the cab, stopped the traffic and gently coaxed the swan out of harms way into a nearby garden.
"Using my jacket I wrapped him up and held his body and neck securely as I carried him back home towards the canal. Happy and safe at home," concluded the post.
