Animal actor bear Yakov performs at Social Center for disabled children in Moscow

Yakov the bear performed for disabled children at the Parenting Support Center in Moscow.

Aside from his regular job as a professional animal actor film and TV, Yakov and his trainers from the Alexandrov family occasionally take part in charity events. This week, Yakov performed at the government-backed family support center in Moscow.

Yakov and his twin Tikhon are unique animals — from their first months, they were brought up not to be scared of large groups of people, camera and noise. They have a very calm temper and can work without collars and muzzles.
