    A DARING mother and son duo have hand-raised 14 bears in their back garden. In the heart of Bearadise Ranch, Florida, Monica Welde and her son, Johnny IV, spend their days rolling around with bears that weigh up to 1,000lbs. The Welde family have looked after grizzly bears, black bears and polar bears for the last 91 years - using their license to provide for those in need of a home. But the family tradition came under threat last year when Monica’s husband, Johnny III, died of a heart attack just after he turned 60. But with the help of her son, a devastated Monica has put her loss to one side so she can concentrate on continuing the family legacy and caring for their beloved pet bears.

      My bears would never attack anyone. They found a shoe lace and an eye lid of the last poor bastard who said that.

    27. Sylar CM

      People tend to say "no one would rob a house with 14 bears", but perhaps one human smarter than 14 bears would do? There's a reason they're in our care and not the other way around. That being said, I loved the video and the fact that there are people like you and your family in this beautiful world. God bless.

    28. Jen Y

      Thank you for saving them and not giving up

      Plot Twist:'' They bait robbers in, for food''

    67. J Remmie

      That is the most amazing this I have ever seen! And especially with a Grizzly Bear! Wow... To those bears, they (the humans lol) are their parents. She is their mother and etc... She raised them since cubs! So it’s natural that they see her as their mother. And with that comes all of that 800lb Love And Furry Affection. So awesome!

    68. Natural High

      Wouldn't be surprised if this family isn't alive sooner or later oh well?

    69. hanna horan
