One of the biggest predators on Earth, as well as one of the largest carnivores on land. Due to their and strength, they don’t have to worry too much about other predators in the wild. An encounter with them could easily end in death or serious damage and injuries. You simply don’t want to mess with a bear, they are territorial and will attack you if they perceive you as a threat. Females in particular are very protective of their cubs and also won’t hesitate to give you a lesson, if you would appear near them.
Considering the rather scary description of bears it would be crazy to think of becoming a friends with one. If bears are so dangerous then it would be better to stay away from them, but there is also a side to bears which make us think tenderly about them. Maybe it was Winnie the Pooh – as an embodiment of this concept of a sweet bear, who made us think so well about these apex predators? Maybe it’s because when we were young we played with teddy bears, who are also small and sweet? We are not sure what made us think of those dangerous animals as friendly, but it turns out there is some truth to this view.
Now take a look at this bear who made friends with a stray dog and then tell us that bears are all vicious and dangerous.
