MILAN, Italy, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- The Italian National Association for the Protection of Animals said it has taken custody of a mute swan that may have gotten lost during migration.

The association said Tuesday the swan, which may have gotten lost during migration or may have been living in a reservoir, was discovered walking down a Milan city sidewalk in a busy neighborhood and captured by police, ANSA reported Tuesday.

The group said police fed the swan, which did not appear to be injured, lettuce and water until animal rescuers arrived.
