Adorable Grizzly Bear cub learns to feed from a bowl | Grizzly Bear Cubs and Me – BBC

As the cubs grow bigger, it becomes harder to bottle-feed them. So, at this age, the Pazhetnovs try to feed them from bowls. To do that, the orphans need to be weaned onto solid food. What is that? Semolina. Semolina. Katya uses fortified semolina porridge. It’s packed with essential nutrients. And? Mmm… It’s very sweet. Very sweet, yes. This is something I could eat. The porridge is watered down to begin with, to help with the transition from bottle to bowl. Katya and I will feed the bears one at a time, because learning to bowl feed can be dangerous for the cubs. If they put their noses too far into the bowls, they can accidentally inhale the food, leading to pneumonia, which can be fatal. We start with Zhora, the largest but least developed cub. We want Zhora to associate the bowl with food, so before we put it on the floor, we
give him a little taste of the porridge. This is spot on. Ten out of ten. Zhora is doing incredibly well. He was the bear cub that we were most worried about early on, and now look at him, he’s standing up on his back legs. His whole rear end is coming
up, his head’s down, he’s mastered feeding from the bowl. Zhora’s development has been
slower than the others, but now he’s the first to learn how to feed from a bowl and he’s
starting to walk. He’s a little bit unsteady. But this floor’s a bit slippy, so it’s maybe
not the best surface to show his skills. That’s exactly what we want to see. It’s a huge relief to see Zhora walking. But there’s no time to celebrate with five hungry cubs to feed. The other orphans get to grips with bowl feeding. But weaning baby bears is as messy as you might imagine.

    I've never seen them raised like this. It doesnt seem right. Or healthy. They're kept in too small a box isolated from each other that's just messed up. They should've been walking a while ago.

  9. Black Hammer November 25, 2019 at 12:15 pm

    Why are they locked up in a box?

    No m gusto…..por que el oso bebe esta en una maleta….

  13. Ian O'Brien November 25, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    It would be nice if they'd stay that size, I would be scared to have a full grown grizzly looking a me as a meal lol

  14. Liger Angry November 25, 2019 at 10:13 pm

    Then when its growth as an adult bear its take it to the wild…. Best thing for the 🐻

  15. Mark Cianfarani November 25, 2019 at 10:22 pm

    It's a real shame that these precious little Cubs. In a short time will grow so big..n sometimes consider us food. Very sad..bears..are the one animal.that will hunt for humans .very sad indeed..

  16. The Anime Sage November 25, 2019 at 10:23 pm

    Wanna see baby bears learn to eat from a bowl?

    Fawk YES!!

  17. Lacg Lacg November 25, 2019 at 10:25 pm

    The boxes 😡

  18. eric grosvenor November 25, 2019 at 10:27 pm

    They are so dang cute. One day, not to long, they’ll be apex predators

    Goldilocks lol soon as he said porridge 🥣 😂

  20. Teresa Rowe November 25, 2019 at 10:32 pm

    Poor babbles are screaming and why do they keep them separate

  21. Teresa Rowe November 25, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    Little baby bears so cute but those claws!! My God!!!

  22. Jacob Forahee November 25, 2019 at 10:45 pm

    He would be a good trophy hunt when his older.

    If it wasn't for a biased BBC political view which I hate I would renew by TV license without hesitation

  24. kshamwhizzle November 25, 2019 at 11:32 pm

    baby grizzly slurping ASMR is not something I really needed in my life tbh… but damn those cubbies are cute.

  25. Brian Greenwood November 26, 2019 at 12:43 am

    Messing with nature. Each cub needs a 1500 square mile range. How you going to manage that when there are established wild populations?

  26. GX C November 26, 2019 at 1:15 am

    U want to have bear pet? Just make sure he is always full. Working for all wild life.

  27. TranceSFX November 26, 2019 at 2:35 am

    Imagine rearing a small army of bears to protect you? LOL

  28. Felicia Miller November 26, 2019 at 6:15 am

    I would love this job.❤

  29. John Ji November 26, 2019 at 2:17 pm

    Seems more like a jail. A nice jail but still a jail. Its too tight of an space. That looks like a space for small dog.

  30. jose nunez November 26, 2019 at 5:16 pm

    why not just feed them solids. momma bear doesn't really do "transition" liquids

  31. jose nunez November 26, 2019 at 5:18 pm

    so what's the point here, groom them and sell them to the circus? obviously they'll die in the wild as adults, having learned to eat cooked foods and soups and all

  32. Дмитрий Волович November 26, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    I hope George will marry Katya and take her to the England

    “The porridge is watered down to begin with, to help with the transition from bottle to bowl”. It makes no sense to me whatsoever.

  36. Geek Adventures November 26, 2019 at 11:23 pm

    Lol the thumbnail made me remember my dream last night. In my dream I had a cub as well.

  42. Robert Montoya November 27, 2019 at 7:43 am

    If you feed a bear from a bowl it'll come to expect it, forever. That puts it in danger

  43. Rimma Kulbarisova November 27, 2019 at 8:15 am

    Did you see that snutty little thing hit the camera ? needs anger management therapy

  47. J R November 27, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    In Romania,corrupt government,accept some idiots,family relatives friends of them,to cut down forest,for money…Hundred hectars are cut down every week,and our montains,going deforested at a blink of eye.
    Bears coming down montains,to roads,sitting on edge of road,waiting curious or soulness people,to feed them,most of time there is a bear female with 2 3 cubs arround. Thats is a issue,those days,like 3 or 4 bears were hit by trucks or cars,and even that,there are some,resist,and all need is a vet coming help…and reintegrate them to a sanctuary.
    But the issue is that,ago a week,a male bear was hit by a car,and 3 of his 4 pawns were broken,bear was sitting in agony like 30 hrs,on edge of road,because there the full fucked brain government,and regional administrations,had no a tranquilizer,to put him to sleep to be helped…few hrs later,after bear was roar in agony,under people eyes,was shooted to death,to not sit down in pain anymore…

    Now my question is…is there a issue if a bear catch someone in forest and just kill him?We destroy our habitat,and in our running for money,image,social position,we gonna destroy and them environment…I think most stupid animal in world,still the human.

  48. Joe Home November 27, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    Although they will grow up to be fearsome, we have more to fear from humans who are actively destroying the whole planet for money, power, greed and hatred of their own kind based on race and religion. A vermin on this beautiful planet.

    Keep them locked in a box they cannot see out?

  66. Tatiana Belikh November 28, 2019 at 11:30 pm

  69. ForensicsOnTheScene November 29, 2019 at 5:13 pm

    Why are they locking the cubs away in that crate? Seems kind of cruel. 😫🧸

  70. Apollo360XD November 30, 2019 at 3:59 am

    Those things are dangerous. You can kiss your ass goodbye if you don't have any bear mace or a gun. Well a gun may do little to the adults. The adults are the dangerous ones. Not the cubs.

  71. STEVEN SHEPPARD November 30, 2019 at 5:23 am

    Very cute, you’re doing a good thing 👍

    Bears eat food…put on in an engine blick, they will learn to eat from an engine block.. but way to go. so hard to train a bear to eat food..guess if he defacates you will take the credit fot that, too.

  74. Andy De La Cruz November 30, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    I wonder once they grow up. If they will remember them,that this people fed them and took care of them.

  75. hhhk20 December 1, 2019 at 1:11 am

    Can't wait for the bears to grow up and maul these annoying people.

    soon the masters will be on the dinner table after 6 months

  77. jiros00 December 1, 2019 at 1:58 pm

    Adorable but you can't live with a bear. Dangerous AF. They cannot be tamed and you do them disservice by taking them away from the wild. These videos need to spell that out.

  82. Rusty Shackelford December 2, 2019 at 4:40 am

    I prefer black bear if marinated properly it’s extremely tasty 😋

  83. Secret EyeSpot December 2, 2019 at 8:38 am

    I wonder if humans feeding animals that are naturally wild on a consistent basis makes their health and wellbeing competitively different from those of their species that grew up in the wild only..

    I want one! She can take my wife's spot on our twin bed.

  92. crosbonit December 6, 2019 at 4:44 am

    Too much handling and over-coddling. A hungry enough bear will figure out how to eat from a bowl without having to be held like a day-old baby on life support.

  93. Robert Walker December 6, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    Hell be big enough for people food soon.

  94. Sonja Orleans December 8, 2019 at 6:07 am

    Let me guess a hunter killed their mother.

  95. Supreme Lord Commander December 12, 2019 at 11:59 pm

    Pretty soon you won’t have to bowl feed… people feed is another story though!
