一位當地人保羅-加拉格爾(Paul Gallagher)在推特上警告其他人不要去公園，稱這是 "我一生中最痛苦的一次遛狗"。
Hogganfield公園是Seven Lochs Gateway的一部分，Hogganfield Loch是一個大的淺水體，有一個樹木茂盛的島嶼。它被認為是格拉斯哥越冬水鳥的最佳地點，如大天鵝和金眼鴨。

該發言人要求公眾避免與死鳥或任何出現明顯疾病的鳥類接觸，並撥打0141 287 1059向他們報告。
Glasgow City Council, which looks after the park, said it expected the number of deaths to rise.
Two further swans are reported to be sick and council officials say the public should stay away from any birds that are dead or appear to be ill.
One local, Paul Gallagher, took to Twitter to warn others to avoid the park, calling it "the most traumatic dog walk of my life".
Hogganfield Park is part of the Seven Lochs Gateway and Hogganfield Loch is a large, shallow body of water with a wooded island. It is considered Glasgow's best site for wintering water birds such as whooper swan and goldeneye duck.
Glasgow City Council tweeted about the discovery of six birds on Tuesday afternoon, but quickly increased the number of dead birds to 12.
We have received reports of six dead swans at Hogganfield Park & in-line with advice from DEFRA we're assuming the birds have died from avian flu.
Please avoid any contact with a dead bird or any bird that appears to be visibly sick & report this by phoning 0141 287 1059. pic.twitter.com/jafHdviQy6 — Glasgow City Council ðŸ‡ºðŸ‡¦ (@GlasgowCC) November 15, 2022 The BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites.

A spokesman for the council said that in line with advice from the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), it was assumed the birds had died from avian flu.
The spokesman is asking the public to avoid any contact with a dead bird or any bird that appears to be visibly sick and to report this to them by calling 0141 287 1059.
Two weeks ago, Scotland's chief vet said strict new rules to fight bird flu in England would not be replicated here yet.
All poultry and captive birds in England were ordered to be kept indoors from 7 November amid the worst ever bird flu outbreak.
