At more than 7ft tall, Stepan is so domesticated that the family have been known to sit down in the evenings to watch the television together and he even steps in to help with household chores by watering the plants.

Cuddly Bear as a Pet

Rather handed to the wildlife officials they decide to adopt him and provided food and shelter to him.Weighing 300 pounds, the bear eats 25 kg of fish, vegetables and eggs everyday. This might seem quite a challenge but the couple has managed to bond with him, to the extent of cuddling on the sofa with them.

He also plays with them in the garden and also helps in watering plants. He also love to snuggle with his humans and watch TV and loves picnic.
