英国泽西岛的一只天鹅第二次被剪短了翅膀,因为他爱上了一架直升飞机。这只天鹅在两年前丧偶,他所在的乡村俱乐部临近泽西岛的飞机场。

 
A swan in Jersey has had its wings clipped for a second time after falling in love with a helicopter. Whooper, who lives at a country club close to the island''s airport, lost his partner two years ago.
英国泽西岛的一只天鹅第二次被剪短了翅膀,因为他爱上了一架直升飞机。这只天鹅在两年前丧偶,他所在的乡村俱乐部临近泽西岛的飞机场。
Last year he took a shine to a blue helicopter and flew towards its whirring blades each time it came into land at Jersey airport.
去年他喜欢上了一架蓝色的直升机,每当飞机着陆在泽西岛机场时,他都会兴冲冲地飞向还在盘旋中的螺旋桨。
Les Mielles staff are desperately searching for a female swan to curb his dangerous obsession.
高尔夫乡村俱乐部的工作人员现在正在积极为他寻找雌性天鹅做伴侣,希望可以抑制住他这样危险的痴恋。
In 2012 Whooper took a liking to an incoming EC155 Eurocopter and became completely besotted with the machine.
2012年这只天鹅喜欢上了一架飞来的EC155欧洲直升机,然后完全被飞机迷住了。
He would chase it down the runway without fear of rejection or close encounters with the chopper''s rotor blades. Fearing a bird strike, the airport fire service ordered Whooper''s owners to clip his wings.
他会在跑道上追着飞机跑,不怕被拒绝,也不害怕跟飞机的旋翼叶片太近接触。因为害怕发生飞机和鸟相撞事故,机场的消防署要求天鹅的主人剪短他的翅膀。
But when his feathers grew back, the potentially fatal attraction grew stronger, and Whooper had to be clipped again. Staff at Les Mielles Country Club are now searching for a female swan to keep their amorous bachelor company.
但一等羽毛长回来,这样的致命诱惑却越辩越强烈,于是这只雄性天鹅又再次被剪毛了。乡村俱乐部的工作人员现在正在给这位多情的单身汉找个新伴侣。
Danielle Le Brun, from the club, said: "He has taken a liking to the helicopter. He would chase it and try to get as close to it as possible which is not safe for him or the helicopter.
来自俱乐部的丹妮尔说:”他喜欢上了直升机,他会跟着直升机飞,而且还试图靠得非常近,这不管是对他还是对直升机来说都不安全。”
"I would love to find him a partner as it would help him out and stop him flying around the area. I have never seen anything like this with other swans, it is just him."
“我想给他找个伴儿,帮他摆脱现在的状态,让他不要再在那个区域附近飞来飞去了。我从来没见过其他的天鹅像他这样,他真是特别。”
She said Whooper was very happy, despite his pining for a helicopter, but as swans tend to mate for life finding him a partner would help keep him safe.
她表示这只雄天鹅非常开心。不过尽管他“痴恋” 直升机,但由于天鹅是会与伴侣厮守终生的鸟类,为了他的安全着想还是得给他找个伴侣。
