It’s not every day you see a dog walking on hind legs with an incredible appetite. For one family, however, that’s exactly what their Tibetan mastiff started doing, sparking some serious questions.
A woman in south-west China was shocked to find out the dog she has been raising for two years was an endangered black bear. Su Yun bought a black puppy, thought to be a Tibetan Mastiff, during a vacation two years ago until she found out the pooch, named Little Black, turned out to be a huge black bear.
The “puppy” first surprised Yun’s family with its appetite. Yun said the animal could down a box of fruits and two buckets of noodles every day.
That’s when Yun began questioning whether her dog was, in fact, a Tibetan mastiff, a breed that typically reaches around 82 kilograms (180 pounds) and stands 71 centimeters (28 inches) tall.
Yun told the Chinese Media:
“The more he grew, the more like a bear he looked. I am a little scared of bears.”
Yun decided to take Little Black to the wildlife center because it is illegal to keep or raise wildlife animals in residential homes.
She asked for help at the Kunming Zoo, but the zoo refused to take in Little Black because she failed to provide a birth certificate for the bear.
The concerned woman then contacted Kunming Forestry Police, and they suggested to send the bear to Yunnan Wildlife Rescue Center, where it was identified as an Asiatic Black Bear, more commonly known as a white chested bear.
World Wildlife Organization (WWF) has listed the bear as a second-class protected animal species in China. Even though the bear was kept as a household pet with the Yun family, the rescue team were reportedly so intimidated by the animal they sedated it before transporting it.
