Photographer Documents the Beautifully Uncommon Friendship Between a Wolf and a Bear

Finnish Photographer Lassi Rautiainen expertly captures the beautiful relationship that's shared between a gray wolf and a brown bear. One wouldn't normally see this type of companionship in the wild, but these two seem to have a perfectly symbiotic connection. “No one can know exactly why or how the young wolf and bear became friends,” the artist told Daily Mail. “But I think that perhaps they were both alone when they were young and a bit unsure of how to survive alone. It seems to me that they feel safe being together.”

For ten days straight, the affectionate duo was seen spending time together from 8 PM to 4 AM. They would even share meals and bring each other fresh food. Even in the wilderness, animals can work in harmony to accomplish something important. Rautiainen admits, “It is nice to share rare events in the wild that you would never expect to see.”
