People love pets! From dogs and cats, to some pretty unusual pets. The Pantelenko family keeps one extraordinary pet. Russians, Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko adopted 23 year old Stepan, a 7ft tall and 21 stone bear and have domesticated him, and just like any ordinary family member, Stepan eats at the dinner table, watches TV with his parents, cuddles and does his fair share of household chores.
Although Stepan’s favourite treat is a can of condensed milk, the 300lb bear’s huge appetite requires the Panteleenkos to stock up on at least 25kg of fish, vegetables and eggs. Stepan’s bond with the couple goes back a long way when he was adopted by them at the age of just three months.
