Bears love fish, so going fishing naturally comes as one of their favorite activities. But a massive brown bear sharing a boat with his human friend and fishing together sounds like something too much to handle! Well, believe it or not, that’s what this kindhearted woman and her rescued bear do on a daily basis. Meet Veronika Dichka and her massive friend, Archie!
Veronica rescued Archie from the safari park, which closed two years ago, and keeps him as a pet.
The couple, like any other friends, cherish each other’s company.
“We rescued him from the safari park but can’t release him into the wild as he has lived in captivity his whole life,” she said.
The pair has been recently caught on camera while fishing together on a lake in Novosibirsk, Russia and the adorable photos look like something out of a fairytale. Although they spend a lot of time together, fishing remains their favorite activity. Maybe because, both of them are great fond of new adventures.
Veronica said: “He sees me as a member of his family. We share food, he sleeps in my arms, when he’s afraid, he hides behind me.
We rescued him from a safari park, but we cannot release him into the wild, as he has lived in captivity all his life.
Archie spends every day with us and is madly in love with water. He really likes it when I take him to new places, so this shoot gave him pleasure!”
