Striking Video of a Polar Bear’s Chance Encounter With Sled Dogs


Norbert Rosing, a German wildlife photographer who has been featured in National Geographic, was taking photos in the wilds of Canada’s Hudson Bay, with his huskies, when a polar bear appeared. The shots were later used in a slideshow and speech given by Stuart Brown, a psychiatrist who specializes in human evolution and animal play, and founded the National Institute of Play.

While you might assume that the huskies were doomed when the polar bear appeared, something surprising happened.

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

Brian Ladoon progressively allowed more male polar bears to engage his huskies in what he now terms a safe haven for both as you can see in this video.

However, survival is not easy for Polar Bears who have to maintain their body weight to withstand the cold with very scarce food sources in an extremely harsh environment.
