Don't Panic! Lighten Up!
David De Meulles said he was taking a pair of North Star Tours clients on a polar bear watching expedition during the weekend in Churchill, Manitoba, when the group witnessed the meeting between the bear and dog, which was tethered on its owner's property.
"I had no idea what was going to happen, and then sure enough he started petting that dog, acted like he was a friend," De Meulles told CBC News. "I just so happen to catch a video of a lifetime."
The video shows the polar bear gently stroking the dog's fur while the two animals enjoy a snuggle.
"I've known the bears to have somewhat friendly behavior with the dogs, but for a bear to pet like a human would pet a dog is just mind-blowing," De Meulles said. "It was a beautiful sight to see, and I just can't believe an animal that big would show that kind of heart toward another animal."

Jon Bauer posted a video to YouTube he said was recorded by a friend on a United flight Friday morning from San Francisco to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Bauer said the passenger began to film just after the pilot asked passengers to refrain from discussing President-elect Donald Trump or other hot-button political issues while in the air.
"I understand everybody has their opinions; that's fine," the captain says over the plane's speaker system in the video.
Their signs read, "More snow, less hate," "Powder to the people," "Make Colorado snow again," and "Anything but summer."
Shannon Lukens of SteamboatRadio.com said they were yelling at all of the drivers in the cars as they drove by the intersection of 5th and Lincoln Avenue.
The good news is that a storm system is expected to bring snow to the mountains later next week, and potentially Denver as well.

Signs And Symptoms:
People with Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.
Individual sufferers often display signs of paranoia and delusion; in acute cases psychotic episodes have been observed. Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder is different from being upset about the results of the 2016 presidential election; People with TARD are unwilling or unable to accept reality, despite irrefutable evidence.
According to the DSM-V, individuals with TARD exhibit most or all of the following symptoms:
- Telling others they are moving to Canada;
- Fixated on fantasies about the Electoral College;
- Protesting an election no credible source contests the outcome of
- Exclamations that "Someone" should do "Something";
- Acute change in demeanor from pompous and arrogant to fearful and combative;
- Claim that anyone who disagrees with them is some combination of Racist, Sexist, Bigoted, Homophobic, and actually some sort of Hitler persona.

Trump was also mocked in another episode of the satirical cartoon, aired last year, after he announced he was running for president.
James L. Brooks, executive producer on "The Simpsons", tweeted this morning: "F*** disillusionment!"
In the 2000 episode predicting the Trump administration, Lisa is pictured sitting in the Oval Office surrounded by advisers. "We've inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump," she says. "How bad is it Secretary van Houten?"

"It was really weird," admitted Martian invasion fleet captain Zy-Mon Williams.
"Normally when we invade a planet, the usual procedure is to park the saucers over the largest and most prosperous-looking nation, beam down, point the blaster at some local and say 'Take me to your leader'.
"But this time, for some reason, it's not working.
"All the humans we've collared so far just seem to look shifty or embarrassed, saying things like 'my word, is that the time,' and then run away.
"Also none of them will look us directly in the eye, they just stare at their feet, whereas normally people always stare at us on account of us being green and stuff."
But Williams was optimistic. "Pretty soon we'll find whoever runs this place," he declared, "and then Earth is doomed! Bwa ha ha ha ha ha!"
On hearing this, humanity nodded as if it wasn't really surprised.

So, since people can't seem to predict the most epic election in U.S. history, why not let animals give it a shot?
Thankfully, the Shiyanhu Ecological Tourism Park in China's Hunan province had the same idea, and decided to roll out their not-so-secret weapon for unmasking the future: a Chinese monkey described as the "king of prophets," according to Agence France-Presse.
His name is Geda, and local legend has pegged him as a mystical monkey with prophetic insight — one with an impressive record of correctly predicting the winners of European soccer matches.
