Man calms distressed, injured swan with a cuddle and gets a beautiful ‘thank you’ in return

“But on the other hand, when people have been around them, they can be vicious. Wild swans can peck the heck out of you.”

But that wasn’t the case when Wiese got up close and personal with some swans in Abbotsbury Swannery.

Abbotsbury Swannery in Dorset, England is home to the largest colony of nesting mute swans in the world.
Wiese was joined by members of the Regal Swan Foundation and Swan Lifeline which are organizations that work to rehabilitate injured birds. Wiese was able to get very close to the swans.

“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 said. “It’s a wonderful moment when an animal totally trusts you.”
