This giant condor returned to thank the man who saved it – VIDEO
Edgardo, an Argentinian man, rescued a condor that fell from its nest as a baby and took care of it until the bird was strong enough to be returned into the wilderness. The condor returned to Edgardo after years of freedom to thank him.
In a video posted on Youtube, the condor can be seen walking up to his former caretaker and giving him a hug. Edgardo responds: “Hi, how are you, you crazy thing, how do you do? What a beauty you are.” Edgardo’s cousin said that the man took care of the condor because he felt bad for it. “And that was the beginning of the friendship,” he said.
The heartwarming meeting between the two has been viewed over 1.2 million times on social media, according to Inhabitat. People commented things like “Beautiful to have a pet like this”, “What a privilege! Being able to have a magnificent animal such as this” and “Beautiful! How lovely! It is incredible that the wildest animals give us evidence of love”, as Daily Mail reports.
