Watch This Dude Just Straight Pallin' Around With Bears

Because it's Friday: Here is video of a man hanging around with a bunch of giant brown bears—feeding them, bathing them, making them a snowman with edible facial features. At one point, he splits a bunch of grapes with a couple of these enormous wild animals.

According to this mini-documentary from Barcroft TV (via LaughingSquid), Sulo Karjalainen is a 73-year-old man who runs something called the Kuusamo Large Carnivore Centre, where he looks after several bears he raised from cubs.


He is known as "the bear man" in his native Finland. His buddy-buddy relationship with the creatures is very heartwarming! But before he splits anymore meals with these guys, someone should probably tell Sulo what happened to the Grizzly Man.
