A group of young girls, apparently from China, threw brochures at a couple of resting swans at the Botanic Gardens to wake them up, so that they could get better photos.
A STOMPer who caught them in the act said:
"This group of inconsiderate youngsters from China wanted to take photos of the swans at the Botanic Gardens.
"I knew they were from China from of their accent.
"The swans were trying to catch their rest peacefully and were already going to take a nap.
"I understood what they said, and I heard them complaining that the sleeping swans would not make good pictures.
"The group then decided that one of them should provoke the swan by throwing their brochures at them, so that the birds would stick out their necks for them to take photos.
"This is really inconsiderate ! The photo shows the swan already woken up from its rest."
