Animal trainer Mark Dumas plays with a polar
bear named Agee
Mark Dumas plays with a 16-year-old polar bear named Agee at his home in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.
Mark has an intimate bond with Agee, and wrestles on the grass with her, kissing
her, and putting his head in her huge jaws.
The fearless 60-year-old bear handler even goes for dip in his swimming pool
where he and Agee enjoy a watery cuddle together.
Mark and his wife Dawn have owned Agee since she was six weeks old and the
colossal mammal even lived in their home as a cub where she played with the
family dogs and was bottle fed.
Mark and Dawn train the 800lb friendly beast – the world’s largest
land predator – to star in TV adverts. She has even performed in movies like
‘Alaska’ in 1995 when she was just a few weeks old.
Mark said: “If anyone else tried this they’d end up as Agee’s dinner. The only
people she likes are me and my wife Dawn.”
Mark has trained various animals for many films, including Best in Show, Alien
vs. Predator: Requiem and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
