Today, we are revisiting out regular topic, and one of our favorites, ‘unlikely friends’! We often bring you stories of animals you couldn’t even dream could be friends, but it is obvious that nature is much more deep and complex, and it is not as black and white as we sometimes picture it. There are no clear lines defined between species that divides them into friends and enemies. They are all capable of love and friendship, and in conditions of hardship and starvation they are capable of resorting to violence, but so are humans.
The latest in the series of unlikely friends are a dog and… you’ll never guess! A polar bear! Wait a minute! Aren’t polar bears those huge animals that can crush a human like a bug! You they are, but just because they are strong doesn’t mean they can’t be gentle. As this video of a polar bear petting a pooch proves, they can indeed be extremely gentle and peaceful!
