Bonnie Hart is 62 years old and a grandmother, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for more in the family than just her grandchildren.
In this case, she has two bears for pets, who are domesticated to the point where they act like any other pet.
On top of this, Hart also owns a tiger.
It may seem unwise to have these wild animals are pets, but the woman knows what she’s doing; she came across the cubs years ago and they appeared to be without a mother, so she took them in as her own.
She also received the tiger when the tiger was just a cub, so she’s been her “mother” ever since.
It costs more than $1,000 a month to feed the animals, as she spoils them with people food. But Hart still never forgets that they’re the animals they are—she stays prepared just in case one of them decides to act out.
Even with the high cost of providing for them, the woman says its all worth it. She has also done a good job of letting them socialize, as even her grandchildren are able to play with the animals.
Usually, wild animals shouldn’t be domesticated, but Hart’s case is a special one, and it looks like she does great job in taking care of them.
