A Russian farmer uses a bear instead of a watchdog in his house in the settlement of Starokamyshinsk, the Chelyabinsk region. The man was given the little bear called Lyalya as a birthday gift several years ago. At present moment Lyalya is already a very big bear, although it has a rather peace-loving character. Most of all, the bear likes to wrestle, although no one expresses a wish to wrestle it, but its owner. Usually Lyalya is chained, fulfilling the functions of a watchdog. The bear also accompanies its owner, when he drives his GAZel vehicle. Residents of the settlement do not get surprised anymore, when the see a van with a big bear on the front seat.
