This Russian Couple Have Lived With A Bear For 23 Years And The Pictures Are MAKING US WANT A BEAR TOO
Do you really want children? Like, really? Because bear.
Yes, that's right. Bear. This is Stepan, a domesticated bear who lives in a HOUSE in Moscow with Svetlana and Yuiry Panteleenko (good name for a shampoo, that).
The couple adopted Stepan when he was a 3-month-old cub, as he was found orphaned in a forest and in very bad condition by some hunters.
“He absolutely loves people and is a really sociable bear – despite what people might think, he is not aggressive at all,” said Mrs Panteleenko. “We have never been bitten by Stepan.”
DID WE MENTION HE WATCHES TV AND WATERS PLANTS AND ALSO HE IS A BEAR? Check out some of the amazing pictures below.
