How gentle can polar bear can be, I felt Canadian Mark Dumas. He is probably the only person in the world who has the ability to constantly hug, kiss and even swim in the pool with a white bear. His Pitomice Eyji is already 20 years old. In early childhood, she fell out of the Swedish zoo to one of the best animal trainers in the world, which regularly prepares animals for filming in big cinema.
Since then, the bear has become a family favorite and starred in many films. From the last works – the Norwegian picture "Survive in the Arctic". 20-year-old Agei has its own page on Facebook, which gives an idea of her lifestyle in British Columbia and friendship with family members Dumas.
English Naturalist Sean Ellis admits that he loves wolves as much as his family. He began to engage in these predators in 1990, and before that he studied Lisiza and Koyotov. Wolves conquered his heart: he learned to behave like them, spending two years side by side with wild wolf packs. In 2005, Sean took on the upbringing of three Volchat-orphans whose parents killed hunters.
Then his personal flock increased greatly. Now Ellis heads "Wolf Center" on the coast of Devon’s county (United Kingdom) and conducts courses on communicating with wolves. When Sean comes to his pets, he instantly becomes his: Wolves love to play with him, lying on the grass and expressing pleasure as the most ordinary dogs.

Perhaps the most amazing example of a friendship of man and wild animals – Biography of the young Frenchwoman Tippi Dehre. The girl, which is now 25 years old, has happened to grow among animals, as her parents were wildlife photographers and traveled through Namibia, Botswana and South Africa, and then moved to Madagascar. Her "brother" was Elephant Abu, with whom the girl met for a year and a half: he hugged the baby a trunk and shoved his flies from her, and when she wanted to play, sled her to his back. Tipping easily and easily played with a leopard than surprised her father. The girl was deprived of the society of children, except for short contacts with aborigines, but her friends were lions, ostriches, giraffes, mangone, carakala, crocodiles, zebras, giant frogs, cheetahs, snakes and chameleons.
Typipi spent ten years in such a company, and when he returned to France, became the star: Tippi of Africa was shot about her, the book written by her parents was released, and later the Tippi returned to Africa to remove several documentaries about Nature for Discovery Channel.
