According to a recent article on Yahoo News, a Chinese man contacted authorities after realizing the two “dogs” he adopted were, in fact, not dogs and were actually black bears that he had raised for two years. Here is an excerpt from the article:
Wang Kaiyu brought the animals back to his Maguan County, Yunnan Province, banana farm after being offered them by a tradesman on the Vietnamese border
There is speculation that Kaiyu was well aware the animals were bears, but he contacted the authorities claiming he thought they were dogs for two years because he was afraid he would get in trouble as they grew “abnormally large and feasted on his farmland’s domestic fowl”. Others can relate to Kaiyu’s story and claim they have adopted an animal after being told it was a different type of animal, with an example being a rabbit. A woman said she adopted a rabbit that turned out to be some sort of kangaroo.
What do you think of Kaiyu’s story?
