The unlikely friends square up to each other before rolling around playfully on the mountainside.In the video above you can see the inquisitive bear cub zig-zagging his way across the grass before approaching the man filming and giving him a friendly ‘hand shake’
Suddenly, a dog comes out of nowhere after being released from its leash and runs towards the cub.
The bear cub stands on its back legs as it comes across the dog in Svaneti, Georgia, before the unlikely friends began to wrestleThe pair quickly square off and the bear cub stands on its back legs before the unlikely friends start wrestling.
They cub catches up to the pup and wrestles it to the ground, then they switch roles and the dog starts chasing the bear, it’s a fun sight to watch!
The pair have a brief stand-off as they eye one another up before they begin to playThe crowd watch and laugh at the entertaining scene, and even though the bear is wild, it doesn’t seem fazed with all the people around it.
The dog then turns and begins to run away with the cub in pursuit. It is able to catch up with the pooch before wrapping its paws around it and tackling it to the ground
Neither of the animals become aggressive. The lighthearted rough housing lasts a few minutes before they eventually separate and the bear wanders off.
It is then the cub’s turn to run off and the dog follows enthusiastically. The newfound friends continue with their rough and tumble for several minutes
The cub looks like a young brown bear, which are very common in the area.
