A beautiful story with a happy ending - the cutest thing you'll see all day!
In Turkey, a small bear had been rescued by a man before being released into the wild. Years after this happened, the man found the bear in a river and their reaction is adorable. After a little bit of play-fighting in the water, the bear and his saviour hugged each other. Looks like animals have a really good memory!
Wild animals and men
Wild animals live in natural environments, independently, without human intervention. It is often difficult to forge a relationship with them unless the animal is young. If a young, wild animal is adopted for some time, the human who took them in becomes their parental figure.
Whilst a wild animal such as this one can never be completely domesticated, they can nevertheless develop a really special connection with humans, as was the case for this bear and the man who had saved him all those years ago!
