Stepan is a domesticated bear that lives with his fellow pet humans Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko from Moscow, capital of Russia. This huge bear was adopted as a 3-month-old bear cub when he was found by Russian hunters during their patrol. He was in a very bad condition as he was orphaned and alone, this is why good Svetlana and Yuriy decided to take him hope and adopt him.
Today, almost 23 years later, Stepan has grown into a gigantic loving bear that helps his humans around the house, he enjoys to take photos and loves his love as it is. For an interview Stepans human parents said:
«He absolutely loves people and is a really sociable bear – despite what people might think, he is not aggressive at all,” said Mrs Panteleenko. “We have never been bitten by Stepan.»
You should know that having such a big pet is quite expensive as Stepan eats over 25kg of fish, vegetables and eggs every day! But thanks to his garden work ethics and running around the football ball he keeps his weight in balance.
