A man has been friends with a polar bear for more than 20 years and even swims with him in the pool.

Marc Dumas, a 67-year-old Canadian, became recognized across the world as a result of his innovative companion. For the last 23 years, he has been close friends with an unexpected companion, a polar bear, and frequently swims with her in the pool.

Mark is a renowned animal trainer who adopted Angie the polar bear 23 years ago. She enjoys spending time with her master and talks to him as if he were one of her tribesmen.

This female bear weighs more than 350 kg and has been surrounded by humans since birth. Mark was in charge of her training. She is now a movie and commercial star, despite having her first job as a youngster in 1995. The man has become so used to his bear that he can’t picture life without her. He claims that polar bears can only survive for 35 years outside of their native environment.

The man has never been afraid of animals, he loves them and they answer him with trust and love too. But with Angie, the connection is especially close, it is comparable to true friendship.

The bear is provided with everything necessary and she has the most comfortable living conditions. But at a young age, Angie had a habit of biting and the owner put a lot of efforts into weaning her from this, but at the same time he was not angry with his pet, assuring that this was her natural instinct.
