According to Mira. Co, the woman took the animal on vacation and only realized it was a bear after two years when it started walking on its hind legs, in addition to eating more than normal for a dog.
“A box of fruit and two buckets of pasta every day. The bigger he got, the more he looked like a bear. I’m a bit scared of bears.”
With strong suspicions of being a wild animal, the woman contacted an animal rescue team. Officials identified him as an endangered Asiatic black bear, also known as a moon bear or whitebreasted bear.The bear was taken to the Yunnan Wildlife Rescue Center. (Photo: China News.com)

A sad oddity is that a chemical found in the bile of this species is used to treat a number of ailments such as liver disease. And that’s why they’re sold on the underground market.
