Swans might be known as some of the most beautiful birds on our planet, but this next video proves exactly why these animals are meant to be admired from afar.

Simon Cowell is the founder of the amazing Wildlife Aid Foundation, a charity organization that rescue and care for animals who are sick, endangered, injured or orphaned in the U.K. As you can see in this dramatic rescue of a badger stuck in a hole, Cowell isn’t afraid to get up-close-and-personal with all types of different animals who need his help. However, when you’re dealing with unpredictable animals in intense situations, just about anything can happen and nowhere is there better proof than in the following video.

Cowell rushed to answer the call about a newborn swan chick, known as a cygnet, who became trapped in a tricky situation. He quickly realized that it wasn’t going to be a simple as pushing the tiny cygnet out of the fence it was stuck in. Swans are very protective creatures and more dangerous than many people expect, so Cowell had to face the angry father as well.

Luckily, Cowell was able to get the little one out safely, but not without taking a few hits from papa swan. Even when Cowell reunites the cygnet with the rest of the family, the defensive dad is quick to fight him off. You just have to laugh at this crazy encounter because, at the end of the day, it’s nice to see an animal so protective over their young.
