A Love Story to beat all love stories
Anyway, the photos show some very touching pictures of a swallow actually crying in distress after his mate was hit by a car.
This is not for the faint-hearted – it’s a real tear jerker and I defy anyone to watch it dry-eyed. Just three little pictures but they say so much!
How the French Responded
Apparently these photos were sold to a famous French newspaper for a small fee. The paper sold out that same day and millions of people wept over them.
There are many true stories about animals that show feeling. But this is one of the most touching by far. It’s a poignant love story that has stolen people’s hearts.
