And the Wolf shall lie next to the lamb

Some interesting photos a friend just sent me via email..

Generally these sort of pictures frequently get broadcast around the internet, but i'm not much into bulk forwarding stuff, and I found them interesting, so thought I'd post them here..

These images were taken by a guy named Norbert Rosing.

Apparently they are of a wild polar bear coming upon tethered sled dogs in the wilds of Canada's Hudson Bay.

The claims are that Norbert was convinced he was going to see the end of his dogs when the Polar bear wandered in.

But it seems, all he needed was a playful hug, and to make new friends

He reckons that the Polar Bear returned every night that week to play with the dogs.

Amazing.. I am convinced that there will one day come a time when the Isaiah prophecies of the wolf lying next to the lamb will come to pass..

This reminds of a story I once heard, (and this is me, mango speaking, not part of the chain letter), while living in Norway, about a woman who kept a bear as a pet.. She lived in some sparsely populated area, somewhere in the non-enviously cold north.. one day, she chained her bear up in the garden, and left into the town to do some shopping..

Half way to the markets, she heard something behind her, and saw the bear running toward her..

Believing the bear to have escaped it's chains, she stood her ground, and waited for him to get close, then walked to it, slapped it's face, and scolded it telling it that it shouldn't be following her, and to head on back home..

Reluctantly, the bear about faced and headed sullenly back along the path..

After the markets were done, she returned home.. only to find her bear still chained up in the garden!

yeah.. isn't it..

i should have mentioned that the bear in the story i quote at the bottom, was not a polar bear, but a small norwegian brown bear.. - i've never heard any stories of polar bears being tamed..
