If you've ever dreamed of domesticating an adorable bear, it seems Russia is the place to be. The evidence is this amazing video of a bear cub helping a woman dig in her garden while she offers words of encouragement.
According to a Russian-speaker on Reddit, the woman is saying: "Are you a garden helper, Syomochka? Who's helping me? Syo-oma! My he-еlper! Digger! Say yes, Syoma! Be more careful." You know, just the normal kind of thing you say to your tiny bear assistant.
It's unclear if Syomochka helps out with other chores besides gardening—or what will happen when he gets bigger—but for now, he seems perfectly at home, and a perfect gentleman. So where do I get one?
