A talking Russian bear has made his first appearance in front of the Western media. Named Baloo he chatted to the media scrum as if he was accustomed to all the attention.
When asked what he liked most about being a bear he said 'Wherever I wander, wherever I roam I couldn't be fonder of my big home,' and everybody nodded in appreciation.
He went on to talk about many subjects you would think a bear had no bearing on. He questioned why Westerners ate so much red meat in their diets and suggested 'We should look under the rocks and plants and take a glance at the fancy ants, then maybe try a few.'
Baloo finished off with some cryptic advice to businessmen; When you pick a pear, try to use the claw, but you don't need to use the claw, when you pick a pear of the big pawpaw, have I given you a clue?
At the end of the interview he invited back to his to fall apart in his backyard saying we all work to hard.
