This is about as warm and fuzzy as a real hug from a bear is going to get!

A 3-month-old bear cub, after wandering into a yard in Slovenia, has gotten to making some friends. To start, there’s this dog, already part of the Logar family’s home. Then, there are the Logars themselves, who have expressed an interest in keeping the cub in a fenced enclosure.

While authorities have said they would like to move the bear into a wild animal sanctuary, the Logars are still hanging on to the bear, who they’ve named Medo, for now. Get those bear hugs while you can!
