Bear Hug

I received this email from a friend.  I can’t attest to the full story, but the photos seem to speak for themselves.  Here is the text of the email:

I come in peace, unbelievable piece of photo journalism-real life events…

Norbert Rosing’s striking images of a wild polar bear coming upon tethered sled dogs in the wilds of Canada’s Hudson Bay.

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

It’s hard to believe the bear only wanted to hug someone.

The bear returned every night that week to play with the dogs.

Thanks to chuck for forwarding this additional montage of this amazing encounter.

  3. […] Bear Hug The dogs’ owner was sure he was about to lose his sled dogs, but these photos give a whole new meaning to the phrase “bear hug.” […]

  4. Thanks for posting this. Really great pics. This reminds me of this verse from the Bible. Isaiah chapter 11 verse 6: The wolf shall also dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. One day this will be a reality and sights like those pictured will be the rule.

    Great site too

    Nice photoshopping! You might try cutting the dog’s chain out of the photo.

    Well this old paddlenut says this can’t be for real. Photos can lie if photoshop is used. Meat eaters are MEAT eaters and not pup huggers. JMO. I’m not trying to start a flame war or anything.

    But probably the polar bear has been shot by now.
    I say probably, what are the chances it hasn’t been shot?
