Polar bear’s affection for dog caught in viral video
CHURCHILL, Manitoba: A tour guide in Canada has captured an amazing moment of polar bear patting a dog and seemed to treat the pet like his own cub.
David De Meulles said he was taking a pair of North Star Tours clients on a polar bear watching expedition during the weekend in Churchill, Manitoba, when the group witnessed the meeting between the bear and dog, which was tethered on its owner’s property.
“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 News. “I just so happen to catch a video of a lifetime.”
The video shows the polar bear gently stroking the dog’s fur while the two animals enjoy a snuggle.
The video has been viewed more than 6,00,000 times on the YouTube.
