It's a man. And his bear.

Well, we don't know for sure if the bear if his pet, but we do know this man is enjoying his time with the ginormous creature.

The man's got himself an ear-to-ear grin going, so maybe it's a therapy bear (do those exist?). The bear, meanwhile, can't get enough of all the petting, so maybe the guy is some sore of horse whisperer (do those exist?).

While this is adorable, we can't help but recommend you don't try this if you're out and about and come across what you may think is your own Paddington Bear. There may be a better than average chance that bear is not nearly as friendly as this one.
