The animal trainer who's best friend is a polar bear

Grizzly man Mark Dumas and Agee the polar bear do everything together.

They swim together, wrestle together, roll in the grass together... even nap together.

They have been polar pals since Agee was six weeks old and the colossal mammal even lived in Mark's home as a cub where she played with the family dogs and was bottle fed.

Mark, 60, said: 'If anyone else tried this they would end up as Agee's dinner. ‘The only people in the whole world she likes are me and my wife. 'I have worked with bears in this way for over 40 years, so I can read Agee's body language and know how to behave safely around her.' And as this incredible video shows the fearless bear handler from Abbotsford, British Columbia, is inseparable from his polar pal. Mark and wife Dawn, 60, train the 60-stone (800lb) friendly beast - the world's largest land predator - to star in high-budget TV adverts.
