MARY REICHARD, HOST: Su Yun in Yunnan Province, China thought she bought a Tibetan mastiff puppy with a big appetite two years ago.
Turns out the “pup” was a rare Asiatic black bear cub that now weighs 250 pounds.
She grew suspicious when the furry creature began walking on two legs. It’s now at a local wildlife center.
Stranger still? It’s happened before.
In March, Chinese media reported a man in the same province raised a bear he found wandering in the woods. He too thought it was a dog.
To be fair, Tibetan mastiffs do sort of look like bears.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
