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.
