For 12 years, the seagull returns every day to the man who saved his life

Jack Smith, 80, from the UK, helped a seagull with a broken leg. He fed the bird until its wound healed. Since then, the seagull goes every day on the beach to visit his rescuer.

Jack comes here every day to breathe the sea air and see his feathered friend. The man named the bird Chippy. When he is on the beach, the seagull perches or flies near him. Chippy never steals from anyone but Jack.

So we can say that Jack and Chippy are the same age. The maximum age of birds of this species is 32 years.

“When I first found Chippy he was in a lot of pain. But I didn’t know what to do. The next day, when I returned to the beach, I found him. He couldn’t fly and he had no food. Then I realized I couldn’t leave it like that and started feeding the bird. At first I thought he couldn’t survive, because his paw was in such bad shape.”

The man started giving the seagull dog biscuits, which he usually bought for his dog, and soon noticed that the bird’s paw gradually healed. Jack continued to come to the beach every day and feed Chippy, who increasingly trusted the man, writes

“He started approaching me and letting me go to him. He didn’t treat anyone like that anymore, such a connection only existed between us. At the beginning of spring he recovered and flew away, but in September of the same year he returned and did not forget me. »

Thus, Jack and Chippy saw each other almost every day for 12 years.
