the 71 jährige Joao Pereira de Souza aus Brasilien fand vor 5 Jahren am Strand in der Nähe seines Heimatdorfes, dass in der Nähe von Rio de Janeiro liegt, a penguin. Das Tierchen war komplett mit Öl verschmutzt und schwer unterernährt. So de Souza took him home, cleaning his feathers, called his new penguin friend Dindim and nursed him back to health. After Dindim had recovered, took de Souza with him to the beach, to release him back into the wild – and so the penguin swam away.
Doch ein paar Monate später kam er zurück! Nun schwimmt Dindim jedes Jahr etwas über 8000 km von seinem Lebensraum an der Südspitze von Südamerika um Zeit mit de Souza zu verbringen. the Daily Mail reported:
He was astonished when, just a few months later, the penguin returned to the island where he recognised Mr de Souza and returned home with him.
Now, Dindim spends eight months of the year with Mr de Souza and spends the rest of his time breeding off the coast of Argentina and Chile. […]
‚But he wouldn’t leave, he stayed with me for 11 months and then just after he changed his coat with new feathers he disappeared,‘ recalled the retired builder. ‚Everyone said he wouldn’t return but he has been coming back to visit me for the past four years.
‚He arrives in June and leaves to go home in February and every year he becomes more affectionate as he appears even happier to see me.
Schöne Geschichte, which has since been written by life. Friends 4 life!
