The thing about bears is, when you own them--rarely does the story end well. Seriously, bears are all about crushing skulls with their bear teeth. There are perfectly safe pets one can purchase legally that can enhance your life. There are dogs, there are cats... and if you want to get exotic with it, get your ass a hedgehog. NEVER own a bear, because if you do... you will have one of the worst eulogies ever. What else can you say in front of the bereaved other than "Well, guess he really shouldn't have kept that bear."
