MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa  --  A popular swan in Marshalltown is recovering after it was attacked by a dog.

The swan named Bob calls the pond at Riverside Cemetery home. He was chased by a dog onto the ice and suffered a puncture wound to his neck. He is now under the care of a veterinarian.

Cemetery officials say his prognosis is looking better on Friday, but think he misses the water.
