The most feasible option for childless couples is to turn to adoption.
However, one Russian couple took a completely different approach when it comes to adoption.
For starters, the thought of sharing your house with a 300-pound grizzly bear seems less than accommodating.
The setting may sound uncustomary plus dangerous, but for Yuriy and Svetlana, they couldn’t process their life without Stepan, their 25-year-old grizzly.
Standing tall at 7-feet, dwarfing both Yuriy and Svetlana, the bear is tall enough to be a center in the NBA starting lineup. But regardless of Stepan’s imposing figure and the threat he possesses, he is just as domesticated and behaved as your normal pet.
He is well-behaved to the extent that he sit with Yuriy and Svetlana to watch television in the evenings.
Moreover, he occasionally helps around the house by watering the plants and helping Yuriy with his chores.
However, taking care of a 300-pound 7-foot grizzly is no cakewalk. It requires a lot of money, effort and time. For meals only, the couple feeds Stepan 25-30 kg of fish, eggs, and vegetables on a daily basis.
But don’t worry, Stepan is a football frantic and all the weight he piles gets worked on. Yuriy and Svetlana adopted Stepan when he was just three months old, and for the last 25 years, he has become pretty much part of the family – he is a Panteleenko (family name).
