The story of a family in Lakhapada village could simply melt your heart. A friendly sloth bear cub found the family’s house after following a herd of goats.
Once he got there, the bear didn’t want to leave.
The Kisan family was surprised to see the 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.
You can tell by the look on his face that he enjoyed his time there.
But it wouldn’t last forever.

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.
I really wish he could’ve stayed. It seems like he definitely wanted to be with this family.
Hopefully, Buddu will never forget his time with the human family, because they will never forget him.
And we should never forget the special bond that humans and animals share.
