Talk about a "bear hug"!
Incredible video captured at the Orphaned Wildlife Center in Otisville, New York, shows the director of the wildlife rehabilitation facility playing with his buddy: a massive Kodiak bear!
Jim Kowalczik has raised "Jimbo" since he was just a tiny cub unable to be returned to the wild. More than two decades later, Jimbo is anything but tiny!
When he stands up on two legs, Jimbo is more than nine feet tall, and he has grown to tip the scales at around 1,500 pounds. The gentle giant turns 21 this month and is extremely friendly, according to center's staff.
In the video, Jimbo licks Kowalczik’s face while giving him a big hug. Kowalczik reciprocates with a loving back rub.
Kowalczik and Jimbo's adorable play session has been shared more than 14 million times on Facebook.
