Jaw-dropping pictures show an enormous 50-stone grizzly bear cuddling up to children in the forest، daily mail reported.

Astonishing snaps show the youngsters fearlessly frolicking and posing with the brown beast in Moscow.

The tame bear، called Stepan، was adopted by Russian couple Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko aged just three months after being discovered by hunters in the forest، having lost his mother.

The huge grizzly، who stands taller than seven foot، eats a hefty four stone of fish، vegetables and eggs a day.

He has been known to help out around the house - or at least in the garden - by watering the plants.

And he likes nothing more than to snuggle up with his adoptive parents to watch television in the evening.

Svetlana said: 'When we adopted him، he was only three-months-old and had been found by hunters in the forest having lost his mother. He was in a very bad condition.

'He absolutely loves people and is a really sociable bear - despite what people might think، he is not aggressive at all. We have never been bitten by Stepan.

'He's got so many talents and loves a picnic. It's a wonder he doesn't eat us out of house and home.'

Photographer Olga Barantseva، who took the astonishing pictures، said: 'The bear is really friendly. He loves hugging people. He's just like a very big dog.

'Some of the children were scared at first but by the end it was hard to separate them.

'Every kid wants a big teddy bear after all.'
