Watch This amazing 300 pound bear who loves to cuddle up and does household chores
The world over, people adopt pets and make them members of the family. But somehow Svetlana and Yuri Panteleenko thought differently. Their pet wasn’t a dog or a cat, moreover their pet was a loving and caring one that joined them for teas, watched TV and was inseparable from the family. Their pet was Stepan, the 300 pound Grizzly bear.
Stepan is totally domesticated and was adopted by the Panteleenko family when he was just 3 months old. This bear spends time with family and even does his own share of housework.
1 This bear loves a good cuddle on the sofa
Stepan the family bear is huge at 7 feet. At 21 stone, he is one massive animal that would frighten anyone. But for the Panteleenkos, Stepan is family and is a gentle animal.
When Stepan was found by hunters in the forest, he was just 3 months old and in a pitiful condition. He was adopted by the Pateleenkos and since then has become a family member whom Svetlana says is a gentle giant. Svetlana said, ‘Stepan likes nothing more than to cuddle up with us on the sofa at night while we’re watching television.” The bear loves being read a storybook by Yuri and dozes off on Yuri’s lap.
2 This bear has amazing table manners
Both Yuri and Svetlana have trained Stepan to behave socially and even do his own share of housework where he sometimes waters plants. Stepan has an extremely gentle nature and has even learnt table manners as he sits at the dinner table with the family.
Stepan’s daily diet consists of 25 kg fish combined with vegetables and eggs. He also loves porridge and eats more than one bowl a day.
