The lengths people will go to for the ‘perfect’ selfie. If they’re not putting themselves in danger (selfies killed more people than sharks in 2015), they’re putting someone, or something else in danger.
This time, the unfortunate something was a swan which was reportedly dragged up from a lake in Macedonia by a tourist and then apparently left to die on the beach.

The woman can be seen in pictures grabbing the unsuspecting swan’s wing and dragging it up onto the shoreline of Lake Ohrid. She then reportedly took a picture and abandoned the swan.
Baby dolphin dies after tourists yank it out of ocean for selfies. The swan ‘remained motionless after the encounter’, Macedonia Online reports.
A similar incident took place last month in Argentina. A Franciscan dolphin reportedly died after tourists pulled it out of the ocean to take pictures with it, though a photographer at the site refuted this claim.
