CHURCHILL, Manitoba — An adorable viral video shows a polar bear petting an Eskimo dog in Canada.
David de Muelles, a guide for Northstar Tours in Canada, captured the beautiful moment during a bus tour on Nov. 12, according to ABC News.
“This big bear had just woken up from a catnap and stopped right by the dog,” de Muelles said. “The bear then just started gracefully petting the dog like a human.”
“It was incredible to see such a powerful animal be so friendly with such a small dog,” he added. “Normally, these animals are known as killers.”
De Muelles was able to enjoy the moment with one of his clients. He said the experience brought her to tears.
