Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko have a cuddly bear as a pet.
The couple adopted Stepan the bear when he was a 3-month-old orphaned cub.
Stepan was found by some hunters in a forest and was in te.rri.ble condition. Nobody thought the bear would survive, but the two decided to give him a chance and took the bear to their home.
Surprisingly, the cub recovered, so the couple made the decision to offer him a permanent home and adopted him. Twenty three years later, Stepan still lives with them in their home in Moscow, Russia. He is now a part of the family, and the three even sit down in the evenings to watch television together!
Even though Stefan has never lived in the wild and is domesticated, a bear’s instinct can never be fully shut down. Remember that bears are top predators that, therefore extremely dan.gerous.
Even so, the couple said they have no worries regarding Stephan’s wild instincts.
He loves people and is a sociable bear – despite what people might think, he is not agg.ressive at all.
Said Stefan’s human mom: We have never been bi.tten by [him].
They belong to the wild and be free. But this is second best option to live at home and be loved. Not in a Zoo or Circus
A very nice family…! Thank you for taking good care of this beautiful bear.
Absolutely beautiful and the way animals and people should love each other.🥰🙏
