Vet tech Amanda Baird, right, holds onto a swan while veterinarian Agnes Hutchinson bandages the swan's wrist Thursday, Mar. 6, 2014 at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota in Roseville. They keep a pillowcase over its head to help keep it calm. This swan arrived at the rehab center with frostbitten feet, and part of one toe and some webbing was amputated. The swan will likely be released into the wild in 2-3 weeks.
