Video captures the sweet moment caretaker Jim Kowalczik comforted 24-year-old Kodiak bear Jimbo, who was feeling ill on February 5. The footage was taken at the Orphaned Wildlife Center in Otisville, New York.
A veterinarian was called to examine the 10-foot tall, 1,400-pound bear, who was suffering from an unknown illness. The bear was left feeling uncomfortable and agitated after the visit and his caretaker decided to show him “some extra love.”
The animal has been at the wildlife center since he was a cub, due to injuries which left him unable to be returned to the wild. Credit: Orphaned Wildlife Center via Storyful
