Stepan – the Bear Friend of the Russian Family

Stepan - the Bear Friend of the Russian Family

This life is full of amazing things. The family of the Panteleenko have been raising a brown bear for over 20 years. The bear named Stepan was taken by people when its mother died. Now it’s already 23, it eats 25 kilograms of fish, veggies and eggs for lunch and absolutely does not fear people next to him.

These pictures were made by photographer Olga Barantseva, her project is a part of the anti-hunting campaign.

  1. This is so heart-warming. It’s going to be a wonderful time in the future when the only people
    who live on the earth will be people who have a high regard for each other as well as caring
    for the animal creation. (Proverbs 12:10; Isaiah 11:6-9; 65:25)
