Lovers of wild animals and nature just never cease to amaze us. The love that they carry in themselves towards animals is impossible to explain.
This brave defender of wildlife and nature is ready to do anything to make the four bears, which weigh in at around 1,500 pounds each, feel comfortable. For example, he helps them fall asleep by lying down and napping next to them.
The name of this brave and caring person is Jim Kovalchuk. He and his wife founded The Orphaned Wildlife Center.
This rehabilitation center in Otisville, New York is designed specifically for orphaned bears.
Jim has always adored animals. He constantly tried to protect them and help them. But he had the most special love for bears. Since 1990, a married couple has been helping a huge number of bears in need.
However, Jim has never been as attached to animals as he is to these four bears. Two of them are Kodiak and the other two are Syrian brown bears.
These four friends ended up in a rehabilitation center about ten years ago.
And over these 10 years, a strong and special bond has been formed between them and the person who carefully takes care of them.
The bond is so strong that Jim, even without fear, falls asleep next to his four bears so that they feel calm and safe. In the picture below, you can see this benevolent man sleeping next to his 1,500 feet friends.
Jim and his friends not only sleep side by side, but also have fun together. One of their most favorite things to do together is playing in the snow.
