A Russian family adopts a baby bear left orphaned after his mother was killed by poachers.

The Shcherbakov family has been caring for the cub, which is unable to survive on its own, since it wandered up to their house gate three weeks ago.

With scenes reminiscent of the fairy tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the family matriarch cooks porridge for the little bear at the family’s home in Tulun, in Russia’s Irkutsk region.

She also feeds him milk from a refashioned beer bottle, and she told Reuters that he loves snacking on sweets.

The family is hoping to find a new home for the hand-reared bear and has posted adverts on the internet.
