Mansour. As the Russian pilots adopted the bear
At the airfield Orlovka near Volokolamsk this year settled a real bear.
In the spring tiny bear tossed to the airfield hunters. Aviators rescued a baby, nursed him, replacing his mother and best friend bear Mansur became husky Beetle one of the pilots.
When the bear rose slightly aviators tried to arrange his fate. But zoos and circuses have no need for the bears, and local officials, instead of helping, sent handmade Teddy special
station. The pilots once again saved Mansour and returned it to
the airfield, where territory was allocated to the bear.
Now Mansour has his own big cage with a bed, sports complex and
toys. Pilots read professional literature and learn from
international experience of education of bears. In the Internet Mansour is a personal page, which laid out his fresh photos and collect money for food and a wagon to bear.
Mansour climbs the tree. Trying to portray the picture “Morning in a pine forest”, he plays with his friend husky, eats zucchini, watermelons, honey and viburnum. Coming to visit pilots, Mansour hugs with his huge paws, demands that the hand and hums almost like standing next to the aircraft. Soon it needs to hibernate, now aviators help him to arrange warm winter den.
