Hiya,

It could well be true, I've seen two Roe Bucks and an impressive red Deer Stag swimming across the Sound of Mull which is more than a mile wide so they are more than capable of it.

I've seen a pigeon swim across a harbour.. it fell off a boat and landed in the water, then proceeded to swim to the shore now that really was funny to watch.. I've also caught a rabbit on the river Leven it was sort of swimming down the centre of the river .

Had a wild Mink swim past me while fishing Western sea loch. Weird thing was it appeared to be so light it was moving on top of the water more than in it.:blink:

Bit out the area but apparently elephants have been known to swim 3 miles off shore.
Just shows that because they are “always” on land don’t mean they don’t know or cant swim.
Don’t ask me why they do it, suppose like us some animals like a dip from time to time.

It was not uncommon in the Republic of Ireland for dead cows to be washed up on the Shannon. Trouble was they had their ears cut off where the ID tag would have been. It was just some of the local farmer's idea of proper waste disposal!

my uncle caught a swan at st.brides newport.:clap3:

It was a misty day and the dumb bird flew into one of his line's.

:boat: Went down like a sack of S**t.

Guess who had to go and get it out and un-tangle it.:uhuh:
It wasnt very happy at first until I grabbed it around the throat.:yucky:
Carried it up over the rocks and chucked it on top of the bank. :clap3:
It chased him for 30 yards then ran/flew down bank into stream behind. :clap2:
So much for breaking your arm!:g:

Apparently some time ago a dead elephant was found floating off the Aberdeen coast. Makes you wonder how far out it was when it died....:g:
