The substitution was revealed two years later.
In 2016, the Yun family from the Chinese province of Yunnan acquired a Tibetan mastiff puppy. He grew up and turned out to be a Himalayan bear (whose meat, by the way, is very expensive on the Chinese black market). As the Independent writeswith reference to the Chinese media, when even after two years the animal did not stop growing, reaching a mass of more than 110 kg, and began to show a desire to walk on its hind legs, its owners finally realized that something was wrong.
Now the bear is handed over to the animal defenders, to whom the family turned for help. Of course, the way to the wild nature is closed to him – he was brought up as a domestic dog.
