'Beauty & The Beast': Huge Bear Abandoned As A Cub Now Russian Supermodel (Pics) by Macsjebs(m): 9:42pm On Oct 09
A bear who was abandoned by his mother and raised by humans now has a career as a model posing alongside children and adults.

Photographer, Mila Zhdanova, 40, from Moscow, met Stepan the 28-year-old brown bear through her friendship with the bear's owners, Svetlana and Yuri Pantileenko.

Inspired by Stepan's friendliness around humans, Mila set out to create a series of fantasy-inspired scenes featuring Stepan posing alongside models in traditional Russian dress.

The shoot was done across several months in Moscow, as Stepan can only work for around half an hour at a time.

Talking about the shoot, Mila said: 'People have some stereotyped ideas about Russia. They think we never smile and have bears walking the street,'

'We do have bears but I want to show in my pictures that we do smile. Shooting with Stepan is such a treat and I have to restrain my emotions.

'Stepan is so friendly thanks to his trainers' care and love. I've worked with models from Thailand, Australia, Germany, Britain, and Israel who have all flown to work with him.












'Some had heard of the modelling bear and had been dreaming of this for five years.

'The shoots are pure delight. There's never any issues. I've had more problems photographing kittens.

'I hope people see the beauty and strength in animals and nature through my photos.'

In one image, a woman in a full-length fairy-tale dress held hands with the 750-pound bear as she leaned in for a kiss.

In another, the bear wrapped its hands around a lollipop offered to him by one of his fellow models.

One shot shows a model in a stunning red dress feeding the bear while another shows a model leaning in and cuddling Stepan.

The brown bear has become a widely used symbol in Russia.

Currently, its emblazoned on the logo of the United Russia political party.

grin Photography just has a way of making the ordinary look so out-of-this world. Btw, a modelling bear is not ordinary.....

But the courage the models have to pose with a bear!

Domesticating wild animals doesnt mean their diet would change . They just would have their hunting/wild instincts suppressed.

I observe something about we nigerians, we see most of this wild animal as our enemy...
But during my stay in greece, I wonder how these guys play with wild's - have a studymate then who pet a scorpion....

Scorpion wey I dey fear like SARZ for naija..

Though I learnt this wild's do sense human when they see one, 90% have the gift to read human intentions towards them..

Cool Stuffs thou...

A brown bear and its food are playing together, have become friends, even a lion will avoid a brown bear. Truly, God is great and truly our mankind was made in God's image and it makes animals much more physically powerful than us submit to us when we interact on neutral peaceful terms. They always see us as the master, as the boss to submit to and follow our lead and be under our control, instead of them trying to control us. On neutral peaceful interactions, no matter the animal involved, they never try to control us, but rather they yield their power to us, yield themselves to us like it's their natural programming to view us as the superior. Truly God gave man dominion over this world, and it's in our nature.
