Pets like cats, dogs, and parrots are common fixtures in many contemporary dwellings.
Our story’s family, however, came up with an interesting and unusual approach of care for a bear that weighed more than 200 kilograms.
Meet the Aleksandrovs, who have made hugging the bear a family tradition for over twenty years. Do you believe a wild bear might become as much a part of the family as a dog or cat?
Both partners agree that it was difficult at first to train the bear to comply with their many rules of conduct.
They coerce the bear into doing many things with them, including sharing a meal and a cup of tea.
As a result, the couple has said that they have no intention of excluding the bear from their daily lives in order to spare him the emotional toll of loneliness and neglect.
Having to care for the bear is a huge duty that comes with a lot of challenges. It usually calls for a substantial outlay of resources (time, energy, and money).
They feed the bear only the best, most nutritious food. The bear seems to be living a full and fruitful life.
