“When Su Yun bought her family a puppy two years ago, she was surprised by how much the dog ate. “A box of fruits and two buckets of noodles every day,” she told Chinese media.
There was, it turns out, a reason for its prodigious appetite: the animal has grown into a 250lb bear.
The family realised their error when the pet did not stop growing and started showing a talent for walking on two legs.”
I`m not surprised that a Chinese family mistook a bear for a dog, after all the average Chinese sees a dog only when it`s packaged as dog meat in a grocery store or as the entrée in a restaurant.
It was only after two years when the animal ballooned to 250 pounds, and started walking on two legs did the clueless family say to themselves, “maybe this thing isn`t a pooch.”
If my dog developed a penchant for walking around on two legs, I would call an exorcist or animal control.
The bear has been taken to a wildlife rescue center after the family called the authorities requesting help.
I hope and pray the family is sentenced a year in a reeducation camp where they will learn the difference between a playful pup and a freaking bear.
