The bond between humans and animals is truly unique, even if those animals don’t happen to be domesticated. A Reddit user shared a story about a wild animal that befriended a human family in Lakhapada village in India… and it’s a tale that could melt your heart. A friendly sloth bear cub found the family’s house after following a herd of goats.
The Kisan family was surprised to see the sloth bear, but was happy to let him stay.
He never left, so they named him Buddu and he became part of the family.
Sloth bears aren’t usually so friendly, making this bear very special.
He loved spending time with the family.
Because the sloth bear is an endangered species, national forest department officials had to step in. Not only that, but most adult sloth bears are aggressive and deadly, unlike the friendly little Buddu. So, they removed him from the Kisan family home and placed him back in his (disappearing) habitat.
