Norbert Rosing's striking images of a wild polar bear coming upon tethered sled dogs (in Canada near Hudson Bay) are at the link posted below.
The photographer was sure that he was going to see the end of his dogs when the polar bear wandered in.
The bear returned every night that week to play with the dogs.

Oh Kay CJ! Thank you so much for the post, it brightened my day. *Sigh*, so precious.

I am so sorry for mixing you two up. I'm an idiot. LOL.

That video was absolutely adorable. I always thought Polar Bears were mean son of a guns but they are so gentle with those dogs. Amazing!

Don't let this video fool you, polar bears are the most vicious of all the bears.

Yes, they are the top predator in their environment. (as are all bears)
That's what makes this event so weirdly fascinating to me. Why didn't they take the opportunity for a free meal? Good grief ... their free lunches were tethered for them!

That was my thought as well - they were well-fed so posed no danger to the dogs.
