On May 31, 2016
Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko adopted 23 year old Stepan, a 7ft tall and 21 stone bear and have domesticated him when he was only three months old. According to the couple.
“When we adopted him, he was only three-months-old and had been found by hunters in the forest having lost his mother.
According to his new 'parents' he is partial to porridge and his favorite dish is condensed milk'.
He eats a substantial 25kg of fish, vegetables and eggs every day, making mealtimes at the Panteleenko's quite a big deal.
His unusual bond with his owners is so strong that the gentle giant enjoys cuddling on the sofa with them.
"He's got so many talents and loves a picnic. "It's a wonder he doesn't eat us out of house and home."
Svetlana added: “He absolutely loves people and is a really sociable bear - despite what people might think, he is not aggressive at all. We have never been bitten by Stepan.
