After retrieving the crow - and getting a nip on the nose in the process - the Bear returns to its breakfast.

Whether or not the Bear did truly act with the intention of helping the distressed Crow, or was simply curious and thought the Crow was some sort of weird feathered fish, is up for debate. Similar acts of compassion between cross species wild and domestic animals has occurred many times in the past. What do you think? Post your comment in the section below.
