You would think that when polar bears and family dogs encounter each
other in the snow that it would become some sort of battlefield out of The Lord of the Rings.  This video displays an entirely surprising result of these two species encountering each other.  And the results are heart-warming.

I would have never imagined an interaction of that nature.  Polar bears are big-time alpha predators.  To see them playing gently with the dogs is quite intriguing.  While sometimes the dogs look a bit overwhelmed (and who wouldn't?), they seem to be having as much fun as the bears!
