Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko’s newest family member is one of the hairiest and hungriest you’ll ever see. They sit down with him for dinner every night in their Russian home. Their 300-pound brown bear named Stepan loves his family!

“He absolutely loves people and is a really sociable bear,” Svetlana told Caters News Agency. “Despite what people might think, he is not aggressive at all. We have never been bitten by Stepan.”
