This is the incredible moment a wild polar bear was caught on camera playing with a dog.
The footage, captured in Manitoba, Canada, shows the bear pawing the sled dog affectionately.
The filmer writes: “We were out looking for polar bears to photograph when we witnessed a polar approach a chained up sled dog outside of town. ”
“We nervously waited to see how the situation would unfold as there have been reports of polar bears killing dogs before.”
“This bear seemed to genuinely want to play with his canine friend despite being overly strong and a bit rough.”
“The dog came out of it unscathed and didn’t appear to mind the visit.”
