A polar bear in Churchill, Canada was caught on camera doing something unusual by a tour guide who was filming it.
Guide David De Meulles, while taking people on a tour to watch polar bears, noticed a dog being pet by the bear.
The dog was chained on its owners property, and was lying down before the polar bear decided to show some affection.
Although a polar bear’s diet usually consists of seals, they are also known to snack on land animals like reindeer, dogs and even other bears.
De Meulles told CBC News:
“I had no idea what was going to happen, and then sure enough he started petting that dog, acted like he was a friend.
“I just so happened to catch the video of a lifetime.
“It was a beautiful sight to see, and I just can’t believe an animal that big would show that kind of heart toward another animal.
“I’ve known the bears to have somewhat friendly behaviour with dogs, but for a bear to pet like a human would pet a dog is just mind-blowing.”
