Sulo and his bears have the friendship you wish you had

Best bears for lyfe.

WHILE WE DO love a good bear hug, we can’t help but think that Sulo Karjalainen is getting a bit too close for comfort.

Known in his native Sweden as ‘the bearman’, the 73-year-old runs Kuusamo Large Carnivore centre with his brother, and has formed a strong bond with some brown bears after looking after them since they were little cubs.
