"Polar Bear: I Come In Peace" - VERY cool photos of a polar bear and dog

By
Real Estate Agent with Maui Life Homes / Metro Life Homes RS-78439 / BRE #01708344

My sister had emailed me these photos and I was blown away by them.

They are photos taken by photographer Norbert Rosing. 

His striking images are of a wild polar bear coming upon tethered sled dogs in the wilds of Canada's Hudson Bay.

The photographer was sure that he was going to see the end of his dogs when the polar bear wandered in.

It's hard to believe that this polar bear only needed to hug someone!

The Polar Bear returned every night that week to play with the dog.

That polar bear must not have been hungry. Oh, and after the photos were taken they all had a Coke Classic.

Wow, those pictures are amazing.  Never would have thought that polar bear would do that unless it had been staged.

Not only are there lonely people out there, there are animals as well! Everone needs a hug once in awhile.

I have to agree w/ Maureen. I was waiting to see the polar bear take a chunk out of that dog. That looks like the Coca-Cola polar bear.

Ralph,  That is a very interesting post.  Great object lesson here.  Often we fear when there is really no need.  An agressive enemy just might be looking for a little friendship.  Thanks for the post!
