Family Uses a Drone To Find Their Lost Dog and Finds Him Playing With a Family of Wild Bears

A family who lost their dog and resorted to using a drone to locate him were stunned to find their pooch playing with a family of wild bears in the woods. Footage captured the playful Husky in Russia’s far eastern Kamchatka Peninsula, nudging a bear in an apparent introduction. Although the group is technically a pack of predators, they seem unfazed by the excited dog. The family had reportedly lost their pet while enjoying a hike in the woods. The footage has racked up a staggering 27 million views and 12,000 comments on Instagram. Social media users and dog lovers were quick to share their thoughts on the incident, with one commenter writing: “That bear looked up at the drone at the end like ‘Come get your dog please.’” Another noted that it looked like a Pixar movie, while another wrote: "This proves that if humans disappeared today, other animals would keep our dogs as pets.” Bear experts say the video is extremely unusual, as dogs typically trigger defensive attacks by bears. That’s why they recommend when walking through forest areas that dogs be kept on a leash.
