A Russian family take their giant pet brown bear Stepan on holiday as they go on camping trips in the countryside. Stepan is so tame that he joins in with family to play hide-and-seek and even sits down to eat with them. Mother Svetlana said:
Of course we were scared at first — the bear is so huge! And we had no idea how our daughter, Mirra, would react. But everything went smoothly — Stepan is just like a very big, kind dog.
I would say you feel safe and secure in his paws. Even I, as an adult, felt like I was in a fairy tale. I can’t imagine what it was like as a child. Mirra was delighted. She talks about it every day. All she talks about is Stepan.

Mother Svetlana said: “Of course we were scared at first the bear is so huge!’ But she now says he is just like a big, friendly dog.”
Mirra and mother Svetlana prepare the family’s food and even feed it to Stepan using a big bowl and spoon.
Mirra gives her pet brown bear, which is tame and was adopted by the family, a cuddle as her father looks on.
Svetlana added: “Even I, as an adult, felt like I was in a fairy tale. I can’t imagine what it was like as a child. Mirra was delighted. She talks about it every day. All she talks about is Stepan.”
