Pazhitnov Home for Wayward Cubs
August 27, 2012 9:27 AM   Subscribe

When baby bears are orphaned in Russia, it's up to the International Fund for Animal Welfare and Dr. Valentin Pazhitnov to raise them to maturity while realizing they must not become too comfortable with humans. Observe as the cubs discover their natural instincts and dine al fresco and, well, eat some more. Have fun, little guys!

For the record, those cubs are very cute. On the other hand, I am well aware that, were they and I in close proximity, they would be attempting to taste me, and I am not so sanguine with that. I am not for tasting, little bear!

There is a man in Russia who gets paid to stuff little squirmy bear cubs into backpacks and then carry them around as they wiggle about. I am not that man. This makes me very sad.
