"Friendship" between wolf and bear captured by photographer

Post by Koa » Thu Aug 20, 2015 9:53 pm

The saying “opposites attract” rings true with this unusual friendship, as a female grey wolf and a male brown bear have developed a very rare bond.

The pair’s uncommon friendship was captured in Finland by wildlife photographer Lassi Rautiainen. The two animals appear to be inseparable, even when it comes time to hunt; Rautiainen’s photos confirm that the wolf and bear even hunt and share their meals together.
For the full article and all of the photos, go here:

What do you guys think after seeing the photos?

This is truly amazing! I've known if tigers and wolves in captivity do this and domestic dogs with wild deer but I've never known a pair of purely wild animals do such a thing!

Thank you for sharing this, Koa!

That's so cool~ I didn't know that could happen. It says rare but yeah its still cool. They share their meals and everything which is probably the biggest shocker for me but eh they look happy and cute together.

Thanks for the link~

Huh, interesting to see how they developed some sort of symbiosis. I wonder if they'll keep that going at an older age? It made for some unique and interesting photographs, at least!

Thanks for sharing!

This is just the cutest thing! I hope the pair continue to be friends for a long time.
That's truly incredible though, thanks for sharing this Koa!

Ah yes, I saw this before. It's truly amazing to see to apex predators get along so well.
I ran out of snarky remarks, unfortunately.

Clicking the link (for me anyway) just brings me to the Yahoo! mainpage

Heh, a friend of mine sent me one of these photos and reminded me of the article (which I wanted to send to him in return) for which I found some alternatives seeing how the Yahoo link is down:

http://www.boredpanda.com/bear-friend-w ... autiainen/

The boredpanda one focuses largely on the photos. They're really nice to see. :>
