She extends her hand and seems to be giving her caretaker a hug while they play together.

Johnathan keeps stroking her and the bear rolls on her back so that he can stroke her belly.

Johnathan stands by the back legs of Sonya and grabs her legs and gently cradles her up and down on her back.

He lets go and claps his hands so that the bear can reach for him so that they can continue their cute game.

Towards the end of the clip, Johnathan tries to get Sonya, who cannot be released back into the wild, onto her legs, but she refuses to give in.

The recorder of the clip told Yahoo News: & # 39; When she was a small cub, Johnathan was one of her caretakers.

& # 39; She hasn't seen him for many, many years, but recently he came to see if she would remember him. & # 39;

They added: & # 39; She not only remembered Johnathan, but also remembered the game they used to play when she was little. & # 39;
