Boy, you’d think that swans would love having their picture taken since they’re so pretty and all. But one visitor to the Great Bend Zoo last month found out otherwise.

A YouTube user named Steven Takata was filming his brother-in-law, Jeff, trying to take a selfie with a trumpeter swan when the swan decided it didn’t like the paparazzi intrusion.

As Jeff was taking the picture the swan reached out and bit him on the back.

Apparently Jeff was trying to take the picture for a friend who got attacked by a swan to show him that they’re not all bad.
