YUNAAN, China -- A man from China got a big surprise. The two cute "puppies" he adopted and raised for two years turned out to be two baby black bears.

According to People's Daily Online, Wang Kayui bought the cubs two years ago.

He says he groomed them every day and they were very well behaved.

It was only when Wang saw some leaflets from the local Public Security Bureau on endangered wild animals, that he recognized that he had been illegally keeping Category 2 protected endangered animals by accident.  So, he turned the animals in.

A spokesman for the Yunnan Wild Animal Rescue Centre says the animals have been identified as two Asian black bears, a male and a female, and are in good health.
