Polar bear pets dog in rare moment on video

CHURCHILL, Manitoba–  A tour guide in Canada captured a rare  moment between a dog and a polar bear on Nov. 12.

David de Muelles told ABC News he stopped the tour bus at an Eskimo dog sanctuary in Manitoba. That’s when he spotted a bear petting a dog.

“This big bear had just woken up from a cat nap and stopped right by the dog,” de Muelles said.


Things aren’t always so friendly between the two species on Brian Ladoon’s Mile 5 Dog Sanctuary. He’s accused of feeding polar bears, a violation of Manitoba’s Endangered Species and Ecosystem Act, CBC News reported on Thursday.
