Will you adopt a bear?

Saw this on yahoo.com...

all seasons in one day

The Slovenian Logar family has adopted the three-and-half-month-old bear cub that strolled into their yard about 30 days ago. Although the family would like to prepare a fenced enclosure for it, veterinary authorities would prefer to move it into a shelter for wild animals.

Cutie..

While I appreciate the thought behind adopting the bear cub, I can't help but feel apprehensive. After all, bears are wild animals. Melo (the cub's name) might be all cute and cuddly now, but what happens when he gets all grown up? Even if the adoptive family becomes successful in "taming" him, there is still the risk of Melo harming them, unintentional or not.

This kinda reminds me of "The Cove". Dolphins are meant to swim freely. Not to be caged in some pool, forced to perform tricks for our pleasure.
