Swans are some of the few wild creatures that usually have a partner for life, so when these two swans were reunited, sparks did certainly fly!
Swans seem to portray their feelings to each other, just as humans do, with love and affection. So naturally, in any normal situation where two people are to be separated, it is heartbreaking for swans also.
On this occasion, these two lovely swans had a heartwarming reunion after a short separation.
For many years, Bonnie and Clyde settled themselves in a nearby lake, not far from the city of Crewe, England. The couple became popular around the area, by locals and wildlife enthusiasts – being called local superstars.
Recently locals were concerned as they noticed that Bonnie was injured, and they immediately contacted the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).
The RSPCA sent a team almost immediately to aid Bonnie. However, recusing Bonnie seemed tougher than expected.
“This was a tricky rescue as the female swan was quite feisty so it took four of our water rescue team to bring her to safety using two rescue rafts,” Steve Wickham with the RSPCA, said in a press release.Steve Wickham – RSPCA spokesperson.
The RSPCA team eventually managed to grab Bonnie, and she was escorted the the RSPCA Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre for further investigation. Whilst Bonnie was being treated, Clyde was left alone and heartbroken as he has no idea where Bonnie was or when she was going to return.
With Bonnie still in the care of the RSPCA, the vets discovered that she had a leg injury and said she would recover very quickly.
In less than a month, Bonnie overcame her injury and volunteers of the RSPCA said she was ready to be reunited with her life-long partner, Clyde.
The moment that Bonnie and Clyde were reunited, it left everyone with jaws wide open.
A heart melting scene, which shows just how much the pair mean to each other, unfolded on the banks of the river. This showing how delicate, compassionate and loving these creatures are.
“When she was released, she bounded towards her mate and almost immediately the pair made the shape of a love heart with their long necks,
“It was a lovely moment,” Lee Stewart, centre manager at RSPCA Stapeley Grange quoted.
