WTF? Russian Couple Adopts A REAL Grizzly Bear.

So we always hear about people that own exotic pets - like wildcats or monkeys, baby foxes or domesticated skunks.

But did any of us ever expect anyone to go, "Hey, today let's give adopting a grizzly bear a try?"

Well, now there's Russian couple, Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko, the parents of a very massive fur baby, Stepan

They adopted Stepan when he was only three months old - and now he's so big that he eats over 50 pounds of food a day.

He also enjoys the occasional spot of tea!

In the 23 years they've had him, the Panteleenkos claim that Stepan has never attacked and actually LOVES people.

He even loves playing with his owners in the backyard - from playing a few rounds of fetch to helping out in the garden.

You can watch Stepan and his family enjoying a typical day in the video above!


So how do you feel about domesticated grizzly bears? Is this the BEST IDEA EVER or still completely dangerous?
