Russia: Meet Barney, the un-BEAR-ably cute cub looking for a new home

The tiny paws and claws of the beloved bear cub Barney pattered across a pet hotel in Perm, Tuesday. Reports indicate the bear was originally presented to a child or children as a gift, with the owners getting rid of Barney a week later due to the danger of keeping a wild animal in captivity. A different account suggests the bear was found on the streets and given directly to the animal's hotel. Barney is currently looking for a new home after local zoos declined the offer of hosting the mammal. It is also believed that he is too old to be trained for the circus, raising problems for the owner of the hotel.
