Swans are not known for being companionable or approachable animals.
They’re known for being defensive and aggressive, which may be pretty frightening.
This is why the host of the popular TV show ‘Born to Explore’ embracing a wo.un.ded swan is so touching.
When visiting the Abbotsbury Swannery in the United Kingdom, Richard noticed a swan that had inj.u.red herself by flying into a chain-link fence.
He assisted by grasping the swan while she was being examined to soothe her.
“I could feel its heart pounding as I held it next to me, and it just relaxed its neck and wrapped it around mine,” Wiese said. “It’s a fantastic moment when an animal completely trusts you.”
When Richard handled the swan, she didn’t fear him or recoil in terror. Instead, the swan realized he was secure enough to give Richard an unforgettable hug.
