What’s Life Like With A Pet Bear?

This Russian couple adopted the bear when it was just 3 months old. While Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko, from Russia, might seem like an ordinary couple, except for their 23-year-old bear named Stepan.  At more than 7ft tall, Stepan is so domesticated that the family has been known to sit down at night to watch tv together and he even steps in to help with household chores by watering the plants.  While Stepan gets through more than a bowl of porridge a day – he chows down on 25 kg of fish, vegetables and eggs – his favorite dish is a can of condensed milk thanks to a sweet tooth.
