Horrified office workers watched a swan “cut to pieces” by the blades of a wind turbine.
The incident took place at Swansea’s Enterprise Zone earlier this week.
A worker at an office overlooking the turbine said, “It was cut to pieces and there was blood and feathers everywhere.”
The turbine is owned by toiletries company Montagne Jeunesse.
A company spokeswoman said, “We were saddened to hear of the incident. The turbine normally makes enough noise to keep birds away.”
