A female swan came down with a case of botulism. She was hospitalized by Dierenbescherming, an animal rescue group in Dordrecht, Netherlands. Three weeks later, the swan had recovered well enough to return to her mate in the canal. He was right there, waiting for her. It was a lovely reunion.
Swans usually mate for life. It would have taken longer than three weeks for either of them to give up hope. This is one of those love stories in which only the end is worth watching. (via Tastefully Offensive)
