As a nation swollen with controversy continues to choose sides and tear one another to shreds, two totally adorable animals from Canada show Americans that healing is possible.
A tour guide in Manitoba caught the tender moment when a polar bear gently stroked a neighboring dog.
David De Meulles was leading a polar bear watching expedition when he spotted the furry friends having an early-morning snuggle.
“I’ve known the bears to have somewhat friendly behavior with the dogs, but for a bear to pet like a human would pet a dog is just mindblowing,” De Meulles told CBC News. “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.”
