A tender good-bye between a dying zoo worker and one of the giraffes he spent so much of his life looking after has gone viral.

The man, identified only as Mario, volunteered at the Rotterdam Zoo in The Netherlands for years.

His one last wish was to say good-bye to the animals he loved so much.

The Ambulance Wish Foundation arranged for Mario to be taken to the zoo, where his last wish came true.
