While many have a dog, a cat, a hamster or a fish as a pet, Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko cohabit with a much larger and more unusual companion, a brown bear, they called him Stephan! Since 23 years, this Russian couple collected the wild animal when he was a cub of 3 months. He was found orphan and in very poor health. Svetlana and Yuriy then decided to adopt him. Now, Stephan weighs 136 kg, measuring over 2 meters and eats 25 kg of food per day. Very docile, he loves to play ball, watch TV, enjoy afternoon tea at the table, to be petted. He also love picnics! Svetlana says Stephan is a very sociable bears, absolutely not aggressive, and he never tried to bite, preferring to cuddle.
