VIDEO: Chinese Family Bought A Puppy, Then Dog Grew Up Into A Chinese Bear

It's not every day you see a 110-kilogram (250-pound) dog walking on hind legs. For one family in southwest China, however, that’s exactly what their Tibetan mastiff started doing, sparking some serious questions.

While on vacation in 2016, Su Yun brought what she believed to be a Tibetan mastiff to her home in a Chinese village in Yunnan province, China. The puppy had a voracious appetite eating a "box of fruits and two buckets of noodles every day," reports The Independent. 

That's when Yun began questioning whether her dog was, in fact, a Tibetan mastiff, a breed that typically reaches around 82 kilograms (180 pounds) and stands 71 centimeters (28 inches) tall.

"The more he grew, the more like a bear he looked," Yun told Chinese Media. "I am a little scared of bears."

When Yun called officials, she found out her pet wasn't a dog, or any member of the canine family for that matter. In fact, it was an endangered Asiatic black bear. Footage by officials shows the bear standing almost a meter (3 feet) tall with some very bear-like features. Even though the bear was kept as a household pet with the Yun family, staff were reportedly so intimidated by the animal they sedated it before transporting it.
