Like many people, Mark Dumas likes to have a morning swim. The only difference is that he swims with an 800 pound polar bear named Agee. Agee grew up with Dumas, getting bottle fed as a young cub. Dumas has over 40 years working with bears and has learned how to read their body language which helps keep him safe.
Now that’s some real trust!
Dumas doesn’t just work with polar bears though. Here is a video of another bear he works with, this time a grizzly bear.
