There is a National Geographic just on sled dogs and the reasons that they are chained.  These are large team dogs and as a result he has about 150.  They are wolfish in their behavior and will not allow more than one alpha pair, etc.  They are not mistreated as they are made for this terrain and definately prefer the outdoors.  They get enough running around pulling huge sleds.

I like it, though... why the dogs continue to be chained in an open space??? I mean, what's the reason for it?

I see this chaining dogs cruel and a SICURE way to make them becoming food for the bears!

Life is filled with moments in time. Each moment fills a purpose. Lets hope the next moment is not filled with hunger.

Not my area of expertise, but could dogs and bears be related somehow from an evolutionary standpoint?

It shows that this prophecy is not as unrealistic as many might say it is :

Isaiah 11: 6 The wolf will reside for a while with the lamb, And with the young goat the leopard will lie down, And the calf and the lion and the fattened animal will all be together; And a little boy will lead them.  7 The cow and the bear will feed together, And their young will lie down together. The lion will eat straw like the bull.  8 The nursing child will play over the lair of a cobra, And a weaned child will put his hand over the den of a poisonous snake.  9 They will not cause any harm Or any ruin in all my holy mountain, Because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah As the waters cover the sea.
