This Russian Couple Has A Pet Grizzly Bear

This Russian Couple Has A Pet Grizzly Bear –


Russia’s like a whole different world.

Take Yuriy Panteleenko. Guy found a bear cub in the woods when it was 3 months old and adopted it. Now he has a 23 year-old pet bear and a wife named Svetlana. Coincidence? Absolutely not.

Via Daily Mail:

“On the surface Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko appear like any other ordinary couple, but for their 23-year-old bear named Stepan. Standing at more than seven foot, the large mammal is so domesticated the family often sit down together in the evenings to watch television.”

“And the bear has even been known to help out around the house – or at least in the garden – by watering the plants.”


“While Stepan gets through more than a bowl of porridge a day his favourite dish is a can of condensed milk thanks to a sweet tooth. He also stocks up on a hefty 25kg of fish, vegetables and eggs – meaning dinner time at the Panteleenko’s is never a breeze.”


“But fortunately for Stepan, he’s also a football fanatic so works off the gut-busting amount of food his parents serve him every day.”
