Can't tell about Mr. Bear, but the dog is obviously playing. If it were scared it would not be looking back at the bear but would be running, flat out and hard.

This pic is heavily cropped. Possibly to hide something? The animal's handlers, perhaps?

if the dog was scared it's tail would be down between it's legs, it's clearly just playing.

Actually Pacifica, I think there are probably lots of people who know more about dogs and bears than you do.

You may very well know more about dogs and bears than I, Just Sayin, but I remember listening to first hand accounts of people and their dogs who were hastily maimed and/or killed by grizzlies, and the message relayed was that if you are within eyesight of a grizzly in the wild, you are essentially as good as dead meat. They are extremely fast, they do run on all fours toward their prey, and it doesn't have to be for food. Bears are known to kill over territory or even for psychotic reasons. As for the dog and the bear in in this particular photo, well, there are always exceptions to all accounts (as in circus acts), but no wild animal can ever truly be trusted. Between these two, you're looking at the difference between a Sherman tank and a VW bug. No contest. Playing or not, if that bear wants that dog, that dog is his.

You guys all missed the picture of the polar bear playing with the husky? Grizzly bears don't usually hunt dogs for food. Both the dog and bear here also look like they're playing. There's not a hint of fear in that dog's position, he's having fun with his friend, and if the bear were upset with the dog, it'd be up on it's back legs.

I have to agree with Philip on this one.

I don't think so Patito, not with a massive grizzly. The dog wouldn't have a chance in hell, especially with the thick hair of the bear. One swipe with the bear's paw and the dog is down, finished.

I think Mark has it right...that's classic canaine tease, nip and run away behavior..the poor ol' bear is being played..
