Orphaned Fawn Finds Comfort With Dog Who Scares Bears For A Living


An orphaned fawn found an unlikely shoulder to cry on when she was rescued by a Mishka is a wildlife service dog. Mishka is a Karelian Bear dog and is specially trained to help recondition bears that have become habituated to human habitats. He scares the bears so they become afraid around people and stop searching for food sources around people’s homes and neighborhoods.

Despite having to be tough and mean with bears, Mishka is truly a gentle soul, as this video demonstrates. When his human, Officer Richards was called out to rescue an orphaned fawn, Mishka took the baby animal under his care. He is all tenderness around the poor fawn, giving her a few reassuring licks and and lets the fawn stick by his side as any good foster parent would.
