Man Turns Family of Bears Into Taste Testers After They Kept Stealing Honey From His Bee Farm

It’s amazing how much bears love honey!

Occasionally, this love pushes them into raiding beehives, and you know what that means to a beekeeper. In Trabzon, Turkey, these unwelcome guests visited the bee farm of Ibrahim Sedef, the beekeeper. For years, he had been trying to stop these bears from destroying the honey hives in order to get it. 

There was once a time when he tried to contain the bee farm with a metal cage, as well as leave fruits and bread for the bears, but the bears did not seem to be interested in those things.

After installing a camera in the bee farm to track the behavior of the bears, he noticed that they were great taste testers, and he decided to make them taste testers! He then came up with an amazing idea and turned them into taste testers. The bears had a rare taste, as he tested them with four kinds of honey. He wasn’t disappointed with the results. It was often the first honey the bears tasted that attracted the bears to Anzer honey, according to Ibrahim Sedef.
