There is a picture of a swan hugging a man that has gone viral. It’s easy to see why. The Swan gets better after it was hurt, so the hug is probably Swan’s way of saying thank you.
A swan that flew into a chain-link fence in the UK injured itself. Richard was at the Abbotsbury Swannery in the UK when he saw the bird. He held the Swan while being checked out to make her feel better.
As soon as Wiese put the animal next to him, he could feel its heart beating, and it just relaxed its neck and wrapped it around his. Wiese told ABC News. “It’s great when an animal trusts you.”
The Swan hugged Richard in a way that made him feel safe and comfortable, not afraid.
