    From the Roath Park and Cardiff Bay areas, the number of swan deaths is now in 37.

    Cardiff council asks anyone who comes across a dead bird to contact them.

    Animal health officials, quoted by BBC, said that "Ongoing investigations are being carried out by the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency disease of wildlife scheme, following the 37 dead swans which have been found in Cardiff.”

    "Tests results to date are negative in terms of threat to human health and there is a strong suspicion that the swans were killed by a natural disease of waterbirds which unfortunately occurs occasionally across the UK. It is hoped these suspicions will be confirmed in the next couple of days."
