A Lone Wolf and A Young Bear

Nature photographer Lassi Rautiainen discovered something in the wilds of Finland that’s both touching and surprising. He found a young, lone wolf. That wolf, though, wasn’t really alone. He just chose not to pal around with a pack… because he had a bigger, stronger friend.

For 10 days straight, Lassi witnessed something amazing. A young bear
and wolf would meet and spend time together.

They would just hang out in the evenings…

But they would also share their kills.

For predators, especially of different species, that is highly unusual

They were right at home with each other. They trusted each
other completely.

There was something about the young wolf that even other
bears didn’t mind.



  1. They clearly had not read the books! Moral lesson here for certain human politicians, n'est ce pas?

  2. Just amazing! Humans can certainly learn about life & living by watching animals.
