Man Captures Footage of Polar Bear Petting a Sled Dog

A Manitoba man caught a once in a life time video of a polar bear and sled dog and their unusual relationship.

(DailyMail) – This is the adorable – and extraordinary – moment a wild polar bear pets a chained-up sled dog in the Canadian wilds.

Polar bears weigh 330-990lbs and can easily kill a dog, especially one on a chain. But this footage, shot by David De Meulles of Manitoba, shows the bear gently stroking the placid animal on the head.

‘I had no idea what was going to happen, and then sure enough he started petting that dog, acted like he was a friend,’ De Meulles told CBC. I just so happened to catch a video of a lifetime.’

I’ll be honest.

From the start of the video I thought for sure it would end with the bear having himself a snack.

I should try to not be so cynical, and believe in Disney-esk relationships between animals, but rarely is that the case.

Thankfully this guy got lucky and caught an adorable moment between two unlikely friends to lead you into the weekend.


There has not been an update yet on whether or not the bear and dog still keep in touch.

We will be sure to update you on their relationship as the news develops.
