Oklahoma Woman Owns Two Pet Bears

Posted: Updated:

Silver City, OK- Having cats and dogs wasn't enough for a Silver City woman. She wanted to have bears as pets.

Wanda Foster was at a livestock sale in Missouri 24-years ago, and couldn't resist when she saw a bear for sale.

However, she learned female bears need to have a male partner, so she bought another.

Over the years she's had 35 cubs. She's now Oklahoma’s only bear breeder.

“They brought a little bear out, and I couldn't resist. I bought it, I didn't know the first thing about bears, but I’ve learned a lot," she said. "We feed them dog food, and fruits and vegetables. We give them no meat at all, they've never had meat."

Foster says she had llamas, wallabies, potbellied pigs and a zebra, however, bears are her favorite.
