Russian Woman And Her Giant Companion Rescued From Safari Park Love Going Fishing Together

As we know, bears love fish and often hunt them to satisfy their empty bellies. But have you ever seen a huge bear sharing a boat with a human and fishing together? It sounds crazy, but this is true story that happens in Russia.

Meet Veronika Dichka and her huge animal companion, a brown bear named Archie! The couple enjoys spending time ‘fishing’ together in a forest lake in their native Novosibirsk. Just like other friends, the pair admire each other and cherish every moment together.

Veronika rescued Archie from a safari park that was running out of business two years ago. Since he cannot be released back into the wild, she keeps him as a pet. She spends her time taking care of him, and they become inseparably together.

“We rescued him from the safari park but can’t release him into the wild as he has lived in captivity his whole life. He sees me as a member of his family, we share food, [he] sleeps in my arms when afraid, and hides behind me,” Veronika said.

Their unusual relationship has been captured by a photographer. They had beautiful pictures fishing, and here are the best ones.

The photos show them sitting in a rowing boat and fishing together on a lake. With fishing rods in hand, Veronika waits for any fish to take the bait while Archie sits next to her and manages to resit the urge to hunt the fish. At one point they hug happily each other.

“Archie spends every day with us and is madly in love with water. He loves it very much when I take him to new places, so this shooting was a pleasure for him!”
