A Russian woman rescued a bear from a closed zoo, and the two are now best friends.

Despite the fact that Russia’s coat of arms features a double-headed eagle, the bear is the country’s unofficial mascot, and some might argue that it is even more popular and widely associated with Russia. While the rest of the world prefers cats and dogs as pets, it appears that only Russians prefer bears. That is the subject of today’s story.

Veronica Dichka, a Novosibirsk resident, can proudly say that Archie is her faithful companion. Maya Kirsanova, who is also from Novosibirsk, first rescued Archie as a cub from a circus. He and a few other bears lived in a safari park until it was forced to close due to the pandemic. As time went on, it became increasingly difficult to keep the shelter running, which is when the brave Veronica stepped in and adopted him. It’s worth noting that Veronica had previously collaborated with the bear on a few photoshoots, but Archie was only a passing acquaintance. But they’re now inseparable, and the photos you’ll see below are proof of their special bond.
