People ‘normally’ have cats, dogs, mice, and birds as pets. But what if I told you this lady has a bear for a pet. Amazing, isn’t it? Well, let’s hear her story
Veronika Dichka and Archie, a brown bear, have been spotted while they were fishing in a lake in Novosibirsk, in Russia. So, how did they end up being best friends?
Archie has been living his whole life in a safari park. Because of that, it was difficult to leave him in the wild again as he had been in captivity for too long. Yet, to change his destiny, Archie met Veronika.
“We rescued him from the safari park but can’t release him into the wild as he has lived in captivity his whole life,” Veronika said. But, being Archie’s guardian angel, she took Archie with her and they have been together for two years now.
“Archie spends every day with us and is madly in love with water. He loves it very much when I take him to new places. We are like family, we share food, sleep in my arms when afraid, and hide behind me. We rescued him from the safari park but can’t release him into the wild as he has lived in captivity his whole life.” Veronika shared her fairly-like story with the media.
