Swan Thanks Man Who Rescued It By Wrapping Its Neck Around Him

Swans are not particularly affectionate or approachable animals. They are territorial and can be quite intimidating.

During a visit to Abbotsbury Swannery in the UK a few years ago, Richard Wiese, host of the TV show “Born to Explore”, encountered a wounded swan who showed not only gratitude but also confidence, in a remarkably beautiful moment.

“When I put it next to me I could feel its heart beating and it just relaxed its neck and wrapped it around mine,” Wiese told ABC News.
