Love is a wonder, and no doubt other living forms can also fall in love apart from human being. In Muenster, north western Germnay, a rare black Australian Swan has been showing all typical love signs for its species, a plastic swan-shaped paddle boat.


The swan has been circling its plastic lover, staring endlessly at it and making crooning noises. It is supposed to fly south for winter.

The park-keepers said that the swan refused to leave the boat on the Aasee Lake – which also should be taken off during the cold weather.

The swan has now been moved to a zoo with his plastic lover.

The Zoo director Joerg Adler said: “This arrangement could go on for ever because the animal now firmly believes he has found a partner for life.”
