1. Everybody Loves Puppies
Kunming City, China, is a birthplace of Su Yun, hardworking mother. At one point she wanted to relax and take her family on a vacation trip.
Along the way, Su and her family saw ad adorable puppy for sale. One look was enough and Yun and her family decided to take the dog with them. They overheard when the seller said the pup was a large breed dog – a Tibetan Mastiff.
2. Little Black And Fuzzy Puppy
On their way back home they decided to name the pup ‘Little Black’. They strongly believed that their fur of the ball with remain so small forever. But the reality was different.
Su and her family agreed to let the dog live inside the house. They never believed in leaving dogs in the backyard. Also, from day one, Little Black pup ate a lot.
3. Little Black Could Eat Anything
Little Black loved his new house, his new family, and moreover, he really loved regular meals. He even ate two buckets of noodles every day.
Little Black gain weight easily and with each day he was heavier. The Yun family loved that their pup was growing into a strong and healthy dog.
4. Little Black Was Growing Too Fast?
Although they were happy to see how fast their puppy grows, something was still suspicious. Little Black was growing overnight. No one was ready for what they witnessed next!
One day Su came home and she saw Little Black standing with his two legs! Although this was her first dog she knew that this was strange.
5. They Spend Fortune
Little Black was hungry all the time. When he turned one year old, Su and her family spend a fortune on noodles and fruits. Yes, he ate fruits like crazy.
By the time he turned two years, Su and her family started feeling scared around their dog. He grew so much that they were scared to cuddle with him.
6. Teeth Were Scary
Little Black had some features that were not visible when he was a puppy. Not only that he was big, but he had large teeth too. But that wasn’t the only issue.
He was constantly standing on his hind legs. He disliked walking on all four. With his size, big teeth, and back hind stand it was unpleasant to be around him.
7. Is It A Roar?
With time Little Black started staying outside. In addition, he couldn’t fit in his large doggie house. Moreover, kids started feeling scared as well.
He never barked. Interestingly, he was often growling and roaring. At that time they started asking if their dog was a dog at all!
8. Little Black Is Not A Dog?
It took them two years to realize that their furry dog is actually a bear! They had no idea what to feel and what to do. So, they made a decision.
They decided to act, as usual, to keep him well feed and to call the local animal rescue team. They needed professional help.
9. They Went Viral
This story was so massive, that National Geographic wanted to explore it and publish.
Shockingly, National Geographic stated that this is not a lonely case and that it happens rather often.
10. Animal Rescue
When Su called the local animal rescue, the police of the Yiliang County Forest Public Security Bureau was in front of their house in just a few minutes.
She told them they had no idea that their dog is actually a bear and that they knew that it’s prohibited to domesticate wild animals.
11. Little Black’s True Origin
When the police came, Little Black was eating. They informed the family that the ‘dog’ was actually a healthy Asiatic Black Bear. Su and her family were shocked.
An Asiatic Black Bear is known under other names such as moon bear, Himalayan bear, and Tibetan bear.
12. Bear Farms
But, how Little Black end up at the market in the first place? The sad truth is that there are ‘bear farms’ that are specially designed to raise this type of bear for their internal organs.
Su believed that the seller knew that Little Black is actually a bear. However, she also knew that they are not capable of raising a real-life bear in their home.
13. Bear Necessities
The authorities immediately check-up on the bear. The conclusion was: the bear was the one-meter height with a weight of around 200 kilograms. So, basically Little Black was no little.
Moreover, the bear was perfectly healthy and with no injuries, meaning that the family really took good care of him. After the check-up, the bear was transported to the Yunnan Wildlife Rescue Center for further examination.
14. Little Black Was Much Loved
Su and her family really missed Little Black. Although he was a bear, he was still loved. After all, they raised him and he was an equal family member.
So, how can one mix domestic and wild animal? The truth is that these bears look a lot like puppies when they are just cubs. Therefore, a mix is often all over China.
15. Three Years Ago
A similar case happened three years ago. A farmer mistakenly adopted a black bear. That also happened in China. The bear was named Scorpion.
Although the farmer realized at one point that Scorpion was actually a bear, he decided to keep him. However, the local authorities received a report and he was taken away.
16. The ‘Small Milk Dog’
Back in 2015, again in China, another farmer saved ‘small milk dog’ wandering in the mountains. He instantly fell in love with this ‘dog’.
He noticed that the dog was bigger with each passing day, extremely bigger. He learned that his dog was actually a bear. He had to leave him under the care of the local authorities, together with Little Black and Scorpion.
17. Bear Bile & Chinese Medicine
Bear farms are active even nowadays all over China. Bears are held for bear bile which is used as a mandatory part of Chinese traditional medicine.
Most of the bears are locked, and those that are not meant to be used for the medicine are sold as large breed ‘dogs’. Few bears can be found wandering the mountains, as well.
18. Unusual Friendships
Even wild animals can attach to different species, including humans, especially when they are puppies or cubs. During their period they need affection, safety, and food.
In return, they are peaceful, thankful and full of affection and appreciation. In most cases, wild animals won’t hurt their human family.
19. Three Is Not A Crowd
Little Black, Scorpion, and Small Milk Dog are under one roof, enjoying their freedom and similar surrounding. Moreover, they are spending their days together.
Unfortunately, new Little Black, Scorpion, or Small Milk Dog can be found nowadays across the black markets in China. Moreover, someone will buy them believing they are buying a furry puppy.
20. Living Life
For a few lucky wild animals, meeting humans that are looking for a dog family addition can be the best thing ever. For some, not so much.
If nothing else, this is a nice way to ‘accidentally’ save bears from sad and horrible destiny and to provide them shelter life in open, that they wouldn’t have otherwise.
