There is stereotype that bears walk on the streets in Russia. That’s not true of course, but sometimes its true. Here we tell you about a famous twenty-two year old bear called “Stepan” who starred in many commercials, video clips, music videos, TV shows and also photo sessions with celebrities.

Around a year ago Stepan had a “son” – Semyon. His mother refused to feed the bear cub and Yuri and Svetlana decided to adopt a new “family member”, probably because Stepan is already getting “old”.

  1. If I move to Russia I want to get a bear and learn to play the balalaika. I don’t drink, so I will forgo the famous vodka. The Russian culture is great overall…..the people can be your best friends.

    • Bears can be picky eaters. I will have to get some expert advice on what they prefer.

      Friends tell me I will need a truck that’s able to carry Bear around. Might need to go to the Vet Dr.

      I would get a bear here in the US but I did learn its almost impossible due to strict wild animal Laws concerning keeping them on your private property. Lots of Red Tape.
