Most of us have witnessed interspecies relationships which appear normal, for example dogs and cats are seen snuggling together or a mother tiger nursing a couple of piglets. Most cases have humans helping the animals along with the introduction, but a Finnish photographer took some surprising pictures of a male brown bear and a female wolf spending intimate time together in the wild for 10 consecutive days!
“ It’s very unusual to see a bear and wolf getting on like this, so no-one can know exactly why or how the young wolf and bear became friends. I think it’s 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.” Said Lassi Rautianen 56. The two were photographed playing together and even sharing food!
