Hey Buddy: Wild Polar Bear Calmly Pets Sled Dog

November 17, 2016

This is a short video from Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, of a wild polar bear calmly petting a tethered sled dog, just like a human would. Where did he learn how to do that? And how am I supposed to believe that's actually a polar bear and not a person in a polar bear suit? The internet has tricked me before. I'm looking at you, last internet date. "What happened?" She wasn't who she said she was. "Who was she?" A polar bear, can you believe that?! "No." Fine, it was just my roommate trolling me. Admittedly, he really does know how to crush a man's spirit. As much as I hate him, I have to admire that.

Keep going for the portrait video while I hit the street to pet dogs.

Thanks to hairless, who is clearly neither a polar bear nor a sled dog.

    This relationship will never work out; They're polar opposites.

    That polar bear actually ate one of those dogs...

    The guy who owns that property had been feeding the bears (illegal), and when he didn't feed that bear one night, it literally ate one of those dogs. It's unknown if it was the dog in the video.

    So before anyone thinks this cute, remember one thing: this is video of the largest land predator on Earth playing with what will become its prey.

    The man who owns this property should himself be fed to the bears.

    Seems a little odd to keep the dogs on a chain when there are bears about. I wonder if the dogs at least have a "safe zone" to run back to if they sense something amiss.

  • So sad. But that's life and that's what you get for fucking with the natural order of things.

    A few days the later the guy forgot to feed the bear so the bear ate the dog.

    The dog was tied up, this is actually scary and I hope it survived because it's not like you can walk out there and untie it. Kind of have to just watch as the polar bear eats dog on a rope.

    There's a guy who lives in Alaska who raised sled dogs and he had polar bears migrate through his property every year. Over the years he figured out that the bears didn't want to hurt or kill the dogs and he's even recorded the dogs and polar bears sleeping together.

  • ToyBoxofGuns

    This exact polar bear ate one of the dogs in this video within hours.

    So...yeah. I'm not sure what Disney fantasy you and that moron you speak of are living in, but in the real world polar bears are the largest land predators on earth.

    That guy reminds me of the Bear Man. They found his rib cage near the camera that fortunately had the lens cap on when he was eaten by the bears that snuggled him hours before.

    Obviously the dog acted too much like a seal. And polar bears aren't very discerning about what they eat.

    Oh, and the dog owner didn't put out food for the bears that night. So... meh. That's life.

    That's really cool and I'm glad I know that! Because my heart was pounding thinking "I wonder how long it takes for the beat to try & bite it just for funsies". I just read an article that Jonathan (see below) posted where a sled dog died - and that the Inuit's say to keep the dogs off the chain because they know they are vulnerable and won't bark and act as better guard dogs.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I think bears and dogs communicate similarly.

    It's been one year since I decided to leave my last work and i couldn't be happier now... I started doing work at home, for this company I stumbled upon online, few hrs every day, and I profit now much more than i did on my last job... Pay-check i got for last month was for $9k... Great thing about this is that i have more time for my kids...
