A Pet Bear Becomes Family
Here is very good news for all the animal lovers in the world. We have found a pet bear which gives new definition to the meaning of family. Svetlana and Yuriy Pantaleeko had adopted a bear named Stepan when he was merely three years of age. Now the 23 year old bear, weighing 300 lb and with a height of more than 7 ft, is a lovable part of their family.
Stepan’s Daily Life
Just imagine what it would feel like, if you woke up everyday to see a bear roaming around your house. The Pantaleeko family goes through such an experience everyday and they are very happy with their adopted child. Stepan has slowly grown up to become a sweet and lovable part of their family. The basket ball fanatic even helps around in the house by watering the flowers.
How Would It Feel To Give A Bear Hug To A Bear?
Svetlena informs us that Stepan has become so domesticated that they can easily hug him and cuddle him. Being cosy with a bear, sounds interesting right? Would you really risk it? But on the flip side, the offer does sound enticing, to get an opportunity to hug a soft fluffy being of 7 ft, would be a once in a life time experience.
Pet Lovers, Do You Sit With Your Small One For Dinner?
Well this question goes out to all the animal lovers in the world: Do you have your dinner with your pet? Stepan is that lucky pet who gets to sit with his family and have dinner with them. He starts with 25 kg of fish, vegetables and eggs as his main course, and then moves on to a can of condensed milk, which is his favorite dessert.
Stepan-The Pet Or The Son?
The sociable bear likes people around him. Staying in a family for so many years has made his temperament gentle. His favorite pass time is cuddling on the sofa with his parents. The life style that this family maintains, is something that we cannot even dream of. It is amazing, the way that the Pantaleeko family has turned a wild bear of the forest into a darling member of their family with their love and care. Stepan is no more their pet, he has become the son of this small and happy family.
