MALDEN, MASS. (WHDH) - A swan that was recently found injured was released back into the wild Thursday after making a full recovery.

Linda Amato noticed the injured bird and helped nurse it back to health before letting it go in the Malden River, according to a post on the Malden Police Department’s Twitter page.

Those involved hope the young fowl will be reunited with its mother soon.

Malden police Capt. Cronin said, “I did not think I was going to be doing this morning.”

Anyone who may see an injured animal is warned never to touch it and to call Malden Animal Control.
