Photographer Documents An Unlikely Friendship Between A Wolf And A Bear

A female gray wolf and a male brown bear were spotted every day for ten consecutive days, spending time together, playing and even sharing food.

“It’s very unusual to see a bear and a wolf getting on like this” says Finnish photographer Lassi Rautiainen, 56, who took these surprising photos. “No-one can know exactly why or how the young wolf and bear became friends,” Lassi told the Daily Mail. “I think that perhaps they were both alone and they were young and a bit unsure of how to survive alone…It is nice to share rare events in the wild that you would never expect to see.”
