Photographer Captures Rare Friendship Between a Bear and a Wolf

Although it is considered strange to see a bear and a wold develop a close bond, the photographer believes that the youngsters were alone and clueless of how to survive alone.


Finnish photographer Lassi Rautiainen photographed an unusual friendship that has blossomed between a female grey wolf and a brown male bear in the wilds of Northern Finland.

According to the 56-year-old nature photographer, he spotted the unlikely pair spending  several hours together for ten days straight between 8pm and 4am. The two young animals would sit down to eat together and enjoy the spectacular views for up to two hours.

Although it is considered strange to see a bear and a wolf develop a close bond, Lassi believes that the youngsters were alone and clueless of how to survive alone.

Lassi said:

“It is nice to share rare events in the wild that you would never expect to see.”

“When I realised that no one had observed bears and wolves living near each other and becoming friends in Europe, I concentrated more and more on getting pictures to show what can happen in nature.”

Scientists Remove Plastic Straw From Sea Turtle’s Nostril in Heartbreaking Video

Please stop using plastic drinking straws!

There's no better way to enjoy an ice-cold beverage on a hot day than to sip it using a plastic drinking straw! But have you ever thought how much damage it can cause the environment?

Drinking straws have existed even before 3000 BCE, and as the drinking straw was patented in the late 1800s by Marvin Stone, many other different types of straws have been invented. Drinking straws made of plastic, in particular, are the most popular as they are cheap and easy to mold. However, these plastic drinking straws are not only harmful to the environment; they can also be fatal to many animal species.

When Nathan Robinson and Christine Figgener were in their in-water research trip in Costa Rica, they found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle with something lodged on its left nostril.

The World Economies Perfectly Explained With Just Two Cows

The world economy explained with just two cows


For many of us who aren't politically or economically inclined, it is quite difficult to explain - let alone understand - how different economic models work. One can easily get lost in all the jargon and reading through an economic report can leave a person scratching his or her head in confusion.

How do you simplify economics, then? The answer is easy - use cows.

In this series of photos circulating online, two cows were used to explain how economic models work. Using the cows as an example, each photo illustrated different scenarios about what would happen to the cows under a specific economic model. This approach effectively gave the simplest definitions of these models in layman's terms - and it didn't hurt that there's some humor incorporated in there too.

This Guy Pretended To Be A Teenage Boy To Prey On Young Girls. What Happened Next Is Shocking!

YouTube prankster Coby Persin made a social media experiment that shows how easy it is for pedophiles to pick up teen girls on social media. The results are shocking!

Social media sites have been primarily created to provide users with an effective tool that allows them to communicate and interact with others. However, the technology is sometimes exploited and abused by others for evil purposes. For instance, pedophiles use it to find potential victims.

Despite age restrictions implemented by Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the likes, minors find their way so they can register for an online account on these sites. Unfortunately, many online predators are out there, making it difficult for more parents to watch over their children all the time. Also, it is a shame that not all parents fully understand the great dangers of letting young ones use the internet irresponsibly.

To illustrate a point, YouTube prankster Coby Persin came up with another social experiment.
