According to a report by the New York Post, Su Yun, who lives in a village in China’s Yunnan province, bought an animal she thought was a Tibetan Mastiff puppy during the holidays in 2016. In two years, the puppy grew up a lot. His weight reached 250 pounds i.e. almost 114 kilograms. Soo Yun was under the impression that she had raised a dog. But Soo Yun often noticed that the animal she had kept walked on two legs. That made the family suspicious. They started gathering more information about the animal. Then they realized that the animal they kept was an Asiatic bear and it was on the verge of extinction.
Soo Yun was worried about the appetite of the ‘dog’ they kept. He had more appetite than normal dogs. He gained weight due to eating more. That made Soo Yun suspicious. Soo Yun approaches the authorities. He informed the authorities about the animal. The officers told Yun that you had kept an Asiatic bear, not a dog. He was shocked to hear that.
According to the authorities, the weight of the bear was 400 pounds, which is more than 182 kilograms. The officers were horrified to see the bear that Yun had tamed. The bear has now been taken to the Yunnan Wildlife Rescue Center. He is being monitored there.
