    A fascinating love story of storks Klepetan and Malena continues to melt people’s hearts all around the world. For the 16th time, a devoted male stork Klepetan flew thousands of kilometers back home to his handicapped mate who can’t fly.

    It all began more than 20 years ago when a kind-hearted widower Stjepan Vokic found the female stork badly injured by hunters. Vokic decided to give her a second chance at life by adopting and taking care of her. On the rooftop of the man’s house, Malena and Klepetan’s love blossomed. At first, it seemed that their relationship was doomed because Malena was unable to migrate with her mate at the end of summer. Nevertheless, their love persisted. Each year Klepeton leaves Malena to the Vokic’s care and migrates to South Africa, flying back home to his love every March.

    Scroll down to see this peculiar relationship for yourself and check out the story we wrote about them a few years ago.
