Fact Check: Have dolphins, swans actually returned to Venice water?
Venice : Italy has completely been rattled with the COVID-19, forcing the authorities to go for a complete lockdown to save the life of people.
While people were quarantined in their homes, a message on social media claimed that dolphins and swans have returned to Venice water after the movement of men disappeared and the pollution level decreased.
A set of photos suggested that dolphins and swans had “come back” to reclaim a home that was once theirs. However, everything that is seen is not true.
Before we talk about reality, check out the social media posts which have been making the rounds on social media.
While the photos and videos suggested that dolphins and swans have returned to the Venice water, it should be known that spotting dolphins and swans in Italy is a common sight.
Secondly, the pictures and videos shared are not real.
The swans in the viral posts regularly appear in the canals of Burano, a small island in the greater Venice metropolitan area, where the photos were originally taken. The “Venetian” dolphins, on the other hand, were filmed at a port in Sardinia, in the Mediterranean Sea, hundreds of miles away.
