This pan-European root bear or berIt is stored in the "den" word. Our ancestors considered the bear brother man, the most like him of all the animals, the sacred animals, and sacred names do not say out loud.
"Bear" because he had appeared.
But do not think that the bear can become a mananother, and never try to make friends with him. Bear is one of the most ferocious predators, according to trainers, working with the bear is more dangerous than a tiger or a lion. Bears sometimes happen unexplained and uncontrollable bouts of aggression, as a result of which a person may suffer greatly. Yet for centuries in Russia were brave, taking for taming and training bears. From there, and popular prints with dancing bears, and from there the circus tradition, and current training.
If it happened that you have found in the woods cubswho killed his mother, then do not try to take them with him and try to educate. Please forestry or other services that will be able to pick up the kids and take care of them. You will not be able to provide them with the necessary care, moreover, even the very young bears may represent a great danger to humans.

If you really want to work withBears, then enroll in a circus school and comprehend the profession trainer. Remember, however, that a lot of pitfalls in this profession. Since Soviet times for training cubs were taken from dens, killing a bear, and taken to work only the most ferocious bears. The fact that working with the bear is possible only when he's angry, but man suppresses him physically, using intimidation and pain. Peace-loving trusting Bears never be able to work in the arena.
Another thing - not trained and tamedthe Bears. There are many cases when the hunters and zoologists breeding and fattening cubs whose mother was killed by poachers. Such bears are fed milk from a bottle, and grow as children, but all conscious "educators" have the goal to teach a bear to survive on their own, and then released into the forest.
