Photographer Captures Something So Extremely Rare, No One Will Probably Ever See It Again

Not all animals in nature live in packs. Wolves, as we all know, live in packs and have a hierarchy. Bears, on the other hand, like to live on their own. Bears will discover each other during mating season, but it will be a brief encounter. In the forest of northern Finland, nature photographer Lassi Rautiainen discovered an odd duet.

The pair consists of a female gray wolf and a male brown bear. Lassi followed the pair for 10 days and was able to see just how important their relationship was.

The bear and the wolf spent all their time together and even shared their kills! Who could have imagined that?!

The wolf wasn’t just friends with one bear, she had other bear friends in the area! The bears all seemed happy to have the wolf hang out with them.

Lassi isn’t sure how this bear and wolf ever found each other and began their incredible friendship.

Perhaps, they were both living on their own at a young age and grew up side by side. It isn’t every day that you see a wolf and a bear playing and interacting like this!
