We hear stories about the dangers of humans interacting with bears, but this story must be the 'exception to the rule'.

In short, a bear 'expert' found two cubs with a dead mum, so he tried to nurse them to health and maturity.  One cub didn't make it, and the other cub is featured in these photos:

According to Snopes.com, the woman in the photos is Missi Pyle, an actress (who, according to her bio) is married to a 'bear expert'.  So, it looks like the story is legit!

 

P. S.  :  Do not try this at home.
