HILLSBORO, W.Va., Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A West Virginia man shared video of an orphaned bear cub becoming accustomed to human companionship after only two days.
Joel Rosenthal, owner of the Point of View Farm in Hillsboro, posted a video to Facebook showing him hand-feeding the approximately 11-month-old bear, which he dubbed Yogi, only two days after he brought the cub into his home.
"Just two days ago this bear had been orphaned, alone and without human contact. Look how far he has come. What a guy he is. Oh, I really do not know its sex," Rosenthal wrote.
Rosenthal has a number of orphaned bears at his home-run wildlife sanctuary, and he allows them to stay inside his home until they become too large and have to move outside.
