ROSTOV-ON-DON, March 20. /TASS/. Police in the Russian city of Taganrog are looking for a man who was shown walking a bear on a video posted on social networks, a source in the Interior Ministry’s Rostov Region Branch told TASS.
"A probe has been initiated into a video showing a man allegedly walking a bear," the source said. He added that the police were set to find out how a potentially dangerous animal could have gotten to the city streets without a muzzle.

The video, posted on social networks on Saturday evening, shows a man walking a small bear in front of a multi-storied residential building. The bear is on a leash but is not wearing a muzzle.
