Do you remember the story of the man who rescued a Saras and nursed it back to health? Arif Khan of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh found the injured bird in a field last year and took care of it. With time, the two developed a strong bond and the bird could not forget what Arif did for it. He even followed her wherever she went, even on a motorcycle.

Some of his videos went viral and the forest department came to know about it. The department had to separate the stork from Arif and also registered it under the Wildlife Protection Act. However, even after this their friendship did not break. In a video that is going viral online, Arif can be seen visiting his friend at the Kanpur Zoo. In the video you can see how the reaction of the bird was after meeting its friend.
The video of their reunion was shared on Twitter by Kailash Nath Yadav of the Samajwadi Party. In the clip, sarus cranes can be seen beaming happily to catch a glimpse of Arif from their enclosure at the Kanpur zoo. The bird also flapped its wings and tried to fly.
Arif, who went to meet the bird two weeks later, can be seen standing outside the enclosure.
Today, once again, the speechless stork chirped in agony seeing his life-giving friend Arif, but both were helpless and could not touch each other. pic.twitter.com/rzhJgZxpSJ

There were reports that since the stork was kept in the zoo, it was not eating or drinking properly. After this, Arif said, “If the stork sees my photo, it will automatically start eating.”
