Russian oil workers feed friendly bear through window – and even exchange high five
A Russian oil worker has been filmed hand feeding a wild bear – and even exchanging a high five with the grizzly creature.
The unnamed worker – seen wearing his overalls and a hard hat – can be seen talking to the unthreatening bear through a window in remote Kolyma, East Russia.
He begins handing biscuits to the ravenous bear, who quickly gobbles them up.
After chowing down on a succession of treats, the man asks for a high five – which incredible the bear obliges to.
In an act of apparent friendship, the man and bear quickly clasp hands through the opening of the remote hut.
Brown bears can grow to weigh more than 1,400lbs – the same weight as an average sized car.
There are thought to be around 200,000 brown bears in the wild, spread across Russia, China, India, North America and Scandanavia.
