Picture: Black bear cubs adopted by farmer

By
Two black bear cubs have been adopted by a Chinese farmer after he discovered them alone in a forest.

The animals, around 20cm long and weighing less than 1.5kg, were presumably abandoned by their mother. Tian Shougui and his wife found the cubs "dying" and too weak to stand.

Tian said: "It was around 3pm and we heard coos while we were working on the tea farm.

"In approaching the sound source, we saw two black creatures lying on the ground, screaming with their limbs waving to the sky... They were dying from hunger."

The cubs, in the care of Tian and his wife, now weigh 5kg and are said to be active and healthy. At night, they sleep under the farmer's bed.

Tian's mother added: "They are just like babies - very adorable."
