Penguin Returns Each Year to Human Who Nursed Him


When Joao Pereira de Souza found a dying penguin on a beach near Rio de Janeiro, he immediately started to nurse him back to health. The creature, who has since been named Dindim, is a South American Magellanic penguin and he was found covered in oil. After rescuing him, Pereira de Souza spent an entire week cleaning Dindim’s tarred feathers in the shower and helped to build up his strength by feeding him fish every day. Once the penguin recovered, Pereira de Souza took him back to the beach to set him free

Happy weepies for the day.
