This incredible & unusual friendship between a wolf and a bear was documented by Finnish photographer Lassi Rautiainen, age 56.
A female grey wolf and a male brown bear were spotted in the woods by the curious photographer who decided to observe them for the next 10 days. The photo-documentary that Rautiainen managed to create is truly an amazing thing, considering that bears and wolves never hangout together.
“It’s very unusual to see a bear and a wolf getting on like this,” says Rautiainen. “No-one can know exactly why or how the young wolf and bear became friends,” he added.
The wolf and the bear play together, explore the forest together and even share their food, making this story to be one of the greatest examples of animal friendship between different species ever to be documented.
“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,” Rautiainen concluded.
