Awwwww, so CUTE.
Or maybe NOT so cute (via Gizmodo):
Remember that heartwarming video from a few days ago showing a dog as it was being petted by a giant polar bear? In a twist that comes as a surprise to no one, a polar bear had to be immobilized last week after it killed and ate a dog from the same sled pack.
Brian Ladoon, who runs the 5 Dog Sanctuary in Churchill, Manitoba, told CBC News that he spotted nine bears near the area where he keeps his dogs chained up, and that one of these bears killed and ate one of his dogs. “That was the only day we didn’t feed the fucking bears, the only night we didn’t put anything out,” he exclaimed.As Timothy Treadwell once found out the hard hard hard way, nature is not a Disney movie.
Nature is hard and cruel and awful.
Nature is dog-eat-dog. Or sometimes polar-bear-eat-dog.
So remember, the next time you see a heartwarming video of a polar bear petting a dog, don't be fooled.
That polar bear ain't trying to be friends with the dog. He's sizing up the dog. He's figuring out if the dog could possibly be food.
And if a polar bear ever starts adorably sniffing around you? He ain't looking for a new human companion.
He's deciding if he can take you. And he definitely can take you. He will eat every part of your body and shit you out.
Wild animals: Not our friends.
