Everyone who has read Winnie the Pooh as a child knows one thing – bears love honey and would do everything to get some. Now, this might sound kind of cute but it’s actually quite a problem for some beekeepers as they sometimes break into bee farms and steal the honey, destroying the beehives in the process.
Fed up with the bears stealing honey, one Turkish beekeeper, Ibrahim Sedef, decided that if he can’t stop the bears, he might as well put their skills to some use.

Ibrahim is an agricultural engineer working in beekeeping, according to Turkish newspaper DHA, and has had problems with honey-craving bears for a long time. Ibrahim did everything to protect the honey – but nothing worked. So he decided to turn the bears into honey tasters.
To do that, the man installed a night-vision camera and aimed it at a table with some honey samples.
He prepared four samples for the bears to eat, ranging from the cheapest to the most expensive one. And the results showed that the bears have a rather expensive taste! For example, they did not even touch the cheapest cherry blossom honey.
