Well, bears still belongs to the same order of dogs, scientifically speaking.
Two years ago, Su Yun bought a “puppy” for her family. Upon bringing the “puppy” home, she immediately noticed its surprisingly large appetite. What she thought of as a puppy ate two buckets of noodles and a box of fruits every single day. Turns out it was a bear.
The family realised their error when the pet did not stop growing and started showing a talent for walking on two legs.
“The more he grew, the more like a bear he looked,” said Ms Yun, a villager living near the city of Kunming in Yunnan province. “I am a little scared of bears.”
The animal has now been taken into care at the Yunnan Wildlife Rescue Centre after the family got in touch requesting help. Footage taken by officials shows it standing about a metre tall. Staff were so intimidated by the animal – which had lived in the family home – they sedated it before transportation.
Looks like the family just has to bear with it.
