Quebec Police Make Friends With A Black Bear (Photos)

Wildlife in Canada is both majestic and unpredictable. Natural beauty can quickly turn deadly for the unsuspecting obverser.

But sometimes even the most dangerous animals are just straight-up cute.

That was the case today when two Sûreté du Québec officers came across an adorable black bear while performing regular patrols.

The curious and friendly bear wandered around the patrol car and even mounted a window to take a peek at the passengers inside.

One officer snapped a selfie as the adorable animal looked in her window. 

The bear looks so forlorn! He just wants some new friends! Hopefully he wasn't just hungry...

Bears tend to find themselves in hilarious situations from the human perspective. Just this week a California man looked out his window to find a bear enjoying his hot tub. Last month, a Canadian man woke one morning to find a bear chilling in his living room.

With more or less anthropomorphic appendages and recalling our favourite childhood toys, bears are often the focus of viral human attention.

The Sûreté du Québec used the incident to remind drivers about the frequency of animals crossings on major roads.

So stay safe out there! You never know when a cute situation could turn deadly. And, please, never approach a bear.
