Animals Just Know

I stumbled across this story about an injured swan who seemed to realize that the rescuer was not a threat and trying to help it, and the bird ended up snuggled around the rescuer’s neck, resulting in the picture below. I just thought it was really cool because the swan was able to understand that the rescuer was there to help it, not hurt it. Sometimes animals just know which is pretty amazing considering the rescuer has no way of telling the swan that ‘I’m here to help.’ I really love this picture – what an amazing moment to capture on camera!
