The Flamingo that Wouldn't Die
Yesterday I told you about the horrible bullies who bashed a poor old blind flamingo.
Well today I got good news.
It's back on its feet, and back with its mate.
"I think it's very important they are back together. You can hear them calling to each other and that just shows that the bond is still there," senior birdkeeper Brett Backhouse said. "They feed off each other a lot. Yesterday, we were saying that they were very quiet, but they are talking to each other now and you could probably call that happiness."
After FIFTY years together.
Wow. That's some love story and one TOUGH old flamingo.
I'd still like to spend some quality time with those bullies.
But isn't that BEAUTIFUL?
