Most people freeze with fear when they are approached by a bear. Not the Friday family.
This Pennsylvania family has a pet bear named Abby. They say that she is just like a dog but a little bit bigger and with wild animal instincts.
Abby’s owner said that he grew up in the country and loves animals. He owned a different bear for 20 years before getting Abby. He says that if you give an animal care and love, they will give you the care and love in return.
The family has a license to own a bear through the state game commission.
Friday says that Abby loves to go for car rides to go to the gas station to get M & M’s. She sticks her head out the window and pants just like a dog. People driving or walking by definitely give a second look at a bear sticking her head out a car.
She also rides on a tractor with Friday and holds onto him just like a person. Friday also says that if he is not feeling so well, Abby starts licking his ear and he instantly feels better.
It’s not always easy raising a bear though. Friday says that sometimes in the middle of the night, he hears a crash and boom. He wakes up to find that Abby has raided the refrigerator and it is completely empty.
