One of the Queen's swans has been found killed and barbecued on the riverbank near to Windsor Castle.

The cooked swan's carcass was dumped near Baths Water, and was discovered by Wendy Hermon, 46, a volunteer for charity Swan Lifeline, which cares for sick and injured birds.

She described the scene as 'sickening', and admitted she would have been distraught if her young son was with her when she made the grisly discovery after being called out by a council warden last Sunday.

A barbeque is grisly? Maybe they gutted it right by the fire.

From the comments, it appears to be an illegal immigration problem.

It looked burned up, feathers and all, rather than barbecued.

Taste is mid-way between Bald Eagle and Spotted Owl, close, but not quite like California Condor...

How does it compare to the White-throated Needletail, Asian Crested Ibis, the Eskimo Curlew or Bachman’s Warbler?

Something a bit suspicious about that.

Just saying.

I like how the article warns readers that one of the photos is “graphic.”

Geez, roast swan was on the royal menu from the Middle Ages until the discovery both of America and the wild turkey.

Roast turkey, unlike swan, isn’t drenched in grease.

The swans of the Thames are known to be mean. Like break your arm with winged knucklebone kind of mean.

That's funny - KFC is actually very popular in the Arab World. There is one next to the our layover hotel in London and Kuwait. There are many Burkas in the London store which is at Marble Arch on the northeast corner of Hyde Park.

Scotland Yard now has a lead.
