Unique friendship between wild grey wolf and brown bear

You don’t see too many of these moments occurring in nature.  Lassi Rautiainen, a Finnish photographer, documented and photographed the unique friendship between two odd, wild animals – a grey wolf and a black bear.  These types of friendships don’t form naturally in nature and to see it in person is quite special.  Lassi speculates that their friendship formed maybe because “they were both alone and they were young and a bit unsure of how to survive alone.”
