Polar bear playing with sled dogs?
I came across the following link on a border collie message board I visit. The original poster thought the photos were fakes but checked it out as an urban legend and apparently they're for real.

If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion.

I think Thomas Mangelsen has a similar image titled "Polar Kiss."

There is TV footage of a polar bear playing with a husky near Churchill, Manitoba.

Glad to hear it's not a hoax. Steve gave me a link to the video a few days ago, but I still can't believe what I'm seeing.

Hope to add it to the homepage shortly.

I have a copy of the Thomas Mangelsen on my wall.

I'd love to purchase a copy of one of these photos. They're amazing.

WoW! That sure is amazing. Those animal docs can't say if it is actually play, but i beg to differ. I wouldn't think it would take a animal shrink to figure that one out.

Hey Sean, It's nice to see another local musher in our neck of the woods. Are you guiding for Paul Reid or mushing on your own.

I think its amazing they can communicate well enough to seemingly enjoy each others company.

It's all about fun!

I saw this with a black bear that came into my yard last year.
I just figured it was young abandoned and lonely. Not to mention looking for some scraps.
