The crane which refuses to leave its human saviour

About one year ago Mohammad Arif found an injured Sarus crane in his field in India’s Uttar Pradesh state. He took the bird home and nursed it back to health.

He thought the crane would return to the wild once its injuries healed, but instead, it stayed on – the crane rarely leaves his side as this video shows.

“It flies away on some days, but always returns by sunset.”
