It is safe to say that animals, of all shapes and sizes, can surprise us at every turn. The animal kingdom is full of amazing creatures that are just waiting to show us what love and empathy are all about. A giant bear demonstrates this point beautifully, one afternoon when he is seen staring very intently at the body of water in his enclosure.
People are anxious to see the bear and are a bit confused, at first, by his odd behavior. Then, all at once, onlookers realize why the bear is staring so fixedly at the water. A raven is drowning in the pool, and the bear has his sights locked on the struggling bird. Everyone thinks that the bear is eager to catch the feathered intruder for lunch, but they couldn't be more wrong.
The bear moves to the opposite end of the pool, where the bird is frantically trying to stay above the surface of the water. The bear reaches down and catches the bird in its paw and, just when everyone thinks the bird is done for, the bear lifts the raven out of the water and sets it down on dry land. Everyone, including the raven, is amazed at this display of compassion. The bear, on the other hand, doesn't seem to notice a thing, as he immediately goes back to his lunch. No one is going to forget this encounter anytime soon. Watch the video, below, to see the shocking display for yourself!
