Did you hear the one about the polar bear that petted a dog?



And you'll never guess what happened next.

The polar bear came back and ate another dog.

Apparently the dogs are chained up outside. Just tied there for the pickings. This story is all kinds of weird. Brian Ladoon runs the 5 Mile Dog Sanctuary in Churchill (Manitoba, I think) and he feeds the polar bears so that they won't eat his dogs but neglected feeding them the very same day the footage was taken. And that right there is illegal. 

And the consequences for the polar bears are now going to be extremely dire, so say the article at Science Alert.

The article goes into further detail about how this odd "feeding of the polar bears" situation developed.

Who knew?

It's called tenderizing the meat before you eat it.

When I check to see if the Watermelon is ripe; it's not called petting.

Leland, LOL! Hunters respect and understand wild animals better than dogooders.

I saw that video and thought WTF! not awwww. The poor dog is chained up. Is he chumming for bears? Who thinks that THIS is a good idea. I didn't know he was feeding the bears too.

Some people are too stupid to live. At least give the dogs a chance and not tie them up in front of one of the Earth's largest and most vicious predators.

Nice dog you have there. Too bad if a polar bear ate it.

Kind of makes you wonder how dogs ever got domesticated in the first place.

This is the commercial that is running in Mitt Romney's head all day long.

That is why he can not be Secretary of State.

I fucking hate polar bears. I hope they all drown in the melted ice cap.

Is there any post where you're not shilling for Trump, ass eyes? For chrissake, give us a fucking break. There's MUCH more to life than politics and politicians.

It was a joke peeper.

Don't you have a window to look in or something?
