Grizzly man Mark Dumas, 60, is the only man in the world who can touch a polar bear

This is incredible!!! Had to share.

ABBOTSFORD, CANADA: Grizzly man Mark Dumas, 60, is the only man in the world who can touch a polar bear. And as these incredible pictures show the fearless bear handler from Abbotsford, British Columbia, even goes for dip in his swimming pool where he and 16-year-old polar bear Agee enjoy a watery cuddle together. 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. She has even performed in movies like 'Alaska' in 1995 when she was just a few weeks old. With his incredibly intimate bond Mark wrestles on the grass with Agee, kisses her, puts his head in her huge jaws, and even bear hugs her as she rears up on her hind legs to over seven feet. Mark and Dawn have owned Agee since she was six weeks old and the colossal mammal even lived in their home as a cub where she played with the family dogs and was bottle fed.

I totally agree with you, Cheri. Poor animal. So sad
How did he get her as a cub? Call me crazy, but I'm one of those people who still believe that these magnificent animals belong in their natural habitat living with their own kind. To take them as cubs and keep and train them for our amusement is cruel.
what a sweetheart! You can see they have such love for each other.
What a story! You can tell the bear is thoroughly enjoying himself, unreal. How exciting that must be for Mark. I LOVE IT!!!
AWESOME to have a pet like that!!
