Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill. Great news from the new revamped Suite 101, where our ol’ colleague Marc Latham has set up a Natural World Media channel.
Polar Bears and Husky Dogs Play Friendly
In an exclusive interview, Marc said he was inspired by footage of wild polar bears making friends with their natural predator competitor husky dogs, and scenes of them playing together on the BBC‘s Chris Packham presented Nature’s Weirdest Events documentary. And that wasn’t the end of it.
The bear brought back friends the next year and it has been an annual event in Churchill, Canada since 1992. There’s more about it in Marc’s first article on the new channel: playing polar bears and husky dogs.
*We don’t recommend trying to copy the huskies and trying to make friends with polar bears, just in case you meet any in the near future.
**The first episode of Nature’s Weirdest Events is available in the UK until Thursday January 10th. There is also some polar bear and husky play footage on YouTube (please note the greenygrey jumper):
