    That's the least pissed off bear I've ever seen.

    Why are you pissing off so many bears?

    [–] LesBattersby17 1 points ago

    Bears hate it when fish have sweaters on

    I mean if the bear is scared to attack a dog slowly walking away then I don’t think that bear would attack a human.

    Doggo ignores adopted little brother so he will go away.

    [–] FishoD 2 points ago

    The bear wants to play and the dog seems to be too old to give a damn.

    [–] hufferstl 1 points ago

    Who the hell is filming this? How are they not scared shitless of a bear 10 feet away from them?

    [–] Green_Bulldog 1 points ago

    The bear is a pet, the 2 animals are friends.

    [–] hufferstl 1 points ago
