Polar Bear Comes in Peace
A good friend of mine sent me this story in the form of an email today, and I found the images so amazing and touching, that I wanted to share the story with all of you. If you thought Polar Bears are totally vicious, you might reconsider your opinion after viewing this hub.
If you don't already think animals are far more spiritually advanced than we humans, think again. Stuart Brown describes Norbert Rosing's striking images of a wild polar bear coming upon tethered sled dogs in the wilds of Canada's Hudson Bay. (see above image)
The photographer was sure that he was going to see the end of his dogs when the polar bear wandered in..
This is genuine, the Polar Bear has made no effort to try to harm the dogs, but is in fact interacting with them in a playful manner, and what's more, the dogs are clearly not intimidated at all.
Surely this is the last thing any of us would expect to have happened when a Polar Bear came across a number of dogs, chained up and unable to escape their fate if he had tried to make a meal of them, Clearly even Polar Bears need some fun time, and not always with their own kind!
The Polar Bear returned every night that week to play with the dogs.
