— Daily Mail Online (@MailOnline) March 7, 2016
A European tourist is sparking outrage after she was caught dragging a swan to take photos with her and then left it to die.
Photos of the tourist at Macedonia’s Lake Ohrid surfaced online this week.
A smiling woman is seen pulling the bird out of the lake and clutching it by its wings to take a picture.
After the encounter, reports say the swan “remained motionless on the beach.” It later died.
Readers of the story are now accusing the woman of animal abuse.
Your stupid selfie is not worth scaring/harming/killing innocent animals. Try developing your sense of empathy... https://t.co/XbjawAJuG8

PETA also condemned the act on Twitter, calling it far from the first forcible selfie spectacle.
Seriously, just STOP. Another animal, this time a swan, has died for a selfie. https://t.co/p4z1bKmKWP
