The Su Yun family bought a Mastiff puppy by the roadside while traveling through remote provinces, and the price of the puppy was much lower than the average price of a dog of this breed. The puppy was brought home and placed in a kennel. The family had been feeding the puppy for two years until they realized that it wasn't a dog.


The Tibetan Mastiff is one of the most expensive dog breeds in the world. Therefore, the purchase of a puppy was considered by the whole family as an investment. The representatives of this breed gain up to 150 lb by the first birthday.


During the first year the pup behaved well, walked with pleasure in the yard and obeyed commands. However, by his second birthday the pet had already gained 250 lb. The "dog" demanded a box of fruit and two buckets of noodles a day.


And then the "mastiff" started getting up on his hind legs. It became clear that it was not a dog. That's when the family contacted specialists, who quickly indentified the species the dog. In fact, it was an Asian black bear living in Su Yun's backyard for two years. It is commonly found in Asian forests and mountainous regions and is a threatened species listed in The International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List.


Naturally, the wild animal was taken to a local wildlife center:

Eventually, the black bear got adapted to a life in the wild and was released into the woods. Now the poor thing has to fend for itself.

According to experts, it is still unknown how exactly the bear ended up at Su Yun's home, perhaps one of the smugglers could not sell the animal and decided to get rid of it in such a way. Su Yun's family probably was not familiar with the peculiarities of raising wild animals and mistook the bear for a Tibetan Mastiff.
