Bear children - MISSION Magazine No. 171: September 2020

— Hello, I received a message from the Vologda Oblast. We found two bear cubs. The bear was raised from the den, leaving two cubs. They were handed over to the hunter now. How will we decide whether to take them?
- Of course, you need to pick it up. Contact a hunter now. From their side, we need a veterinary certificate form number one for the transport of animals. Take documents, prepare. And everything you need: a bottle, a pacifier. Milk. And move slowly.

This is dialogue Vasily and Sergey Pazhetnov , son and father - bear rescuers who continue the work that the founder of the center, grandfather Valentin Pazhetnov, started in 1972.

Drive 1200 kilometers to the village of Nyuksenitsa, Vologda region. The rescue operation is to bring the cubs alive and unharmed to the Rescue Center, grow them up and send them back to the forest. Not to the circus. Not to the zoo. Not to a private menagerie. The beast must return home.

During these nine to ten months, the bear cub should not get used to the person. Otherwise, he will not be able to survive in the wild. The beast must remain a beast that is afraid of a person, his smell, the sound of his voice, any presence. If this natural fear not saved - an adult bear cub will come out to people and, most likely, will die.

January, February, March are the hottest months of the rescue center. At this time, bears give birth, and if they are disturbed, frightened, killed, the babies will die. Cubs are found by chance - rangers, foresters, hunters, tourists. They call Pazhetnov - will you come? pick up?

Two cubs in the Vologda region, for whom Vasily went, more than a day without a mother. They lay in the cold for a long time, curled up in one lump to keep warm. They could catch a cold - in such babies thermoregulation has not yet been debugged, pneumonia develops rapidly.

Vasily buys baby food at the store - on the way home, the cubs will have to be fed according to the schedule, like normal babies. Cow's milk is not suitable for them, they need special baby food, a fatter mixture, because mother bear's milk is five to six times fatter than cow's. Dilute with warm water and feed from the nipple. The children.

North of the Vologda region. End of February. Nyuksenskaya regional station for the fight against animal diseases. The brothers, a month and a half old, have eaten and sleep in cages. Veterinarians are worried: they didn’t know what to feed, how to feed, the cubs push the pacifier out, and the hungry ones cry. We ran to the convenience store, bought the most expensive mixture, and the process somehow went. One was named Grouchy for being harmful, the other Silent One. Hunter Vasily Mikhailovich tells how it happened: the loggers called, said that they had raised a bear, looked in - two cubs remained in the den.

This is usually the case. Either the hunting dogs approached the den, or the lumberjacks nearby were noisy with their heavy equipment, or the hunters frightened off, or the mother began a premature birth from stress. The mother bear leaves the den and abandons the cubs. She saves herself. Such crumbs in the cold are still impossible. If anything happens to her, the children will not survive. These are the foundlings - more precisely, the happiest of them - end up in the rescue center.

Vasily speaks only in a whisper — this is how the rehabilitation process begins. The bear cub should not hear the human voice, should not get used to it. Over the years of the center's existence, since 1985, more than 220 bears have been rescued. It is thanks to the methodology developed by grandfather Pazhetnov that the cubs themselves learn to build dens, look for food, know what to be afraid of and what not to. This means that they will be able to survive without a mother and without a kind adult who will feed them porridge.

And another 1200 kilometers back. The brothers in the back seat quickly ripped open the box with their claws, because they needed freedom. I had to transfer to puppies and kittens carriers. On the way to stop - hungry, burst into tears, you need to feed. We ate 135 grams each, which means that you can drive three to five hours. The she-bear feeds her cubs with milk from the moment of birth until the beginning of summer and continues to supplement them later. But these suckers don't have a mother.

In the village of Bubonitsy, Tver region, where the rescue center is located, veterinarians examined the new arrivals and made sure that they were healthy and had no colds. The father and son of the Pazhetnovs fed the cubs, took them by the scruff of the neck, like a mother bear, and placed them in wooden boxes - an imitation of a natural den. Dark, calm, quiet, the right temperature. The guys got busy and settled down. Finally, they calm down.

On average, a dozen or more orphaned bear cubs are brought to the center per season. Someone very tiny, a few weeks, just opened his eyes. Someone got lost, wandered, wandered and went out to people. Someone, just like Silent and Grumpy, was found alone in the den, because their mother was frightened off or killed. Twelve, fifteen, eighteen orphans that you can't get used to, that they won't get used to in return. wild babies who need to be brought up on a total distrust of a person.

Teaching to be wild is a task in which the condition contradicts the result. But this is the author's technique of the Pazhetnovs, and it works. So that in the fall, when the kids are released back to their homeland, they will get comfortable at home and, perhaps, find their mother by smell.

In wooden boxes Pazhetnova , the first simulators are installed - a specially designed structure made of freshly cut young trees, so that the cubs learn to overcome obstacles. Such attractions do not last long, the guys will definitely break everything, and that's good.

With the beginning of spring, grown up cubs are transferred to an open-air enclosure. They put everyone in a backpack and go ahead - one and a half kilometers on foot, away from the place of deployment of rescuers. The kids are provided with an unheated wooden house with hay and sawdust bedding and one and a half hectares of land, fenced with an electric fence. An imitation of a real forest has been created, in which there is a swamp, a stream, a spruce forest, an aspen, where you can move freely, and at the same time you can be sure that the kids will not go anywhere. They are safe: there is a protected area around, no hunters, no fields with tractors.

Here the cubs will learn to search for food on their own, build dens and learn the main rule - to stay as far away from people as possible. In the first couple of days, they are terribly afraid to leave the house. Everything frightens: bright light, snow, earth, and most importantly - a cacophony of smells. In bears, the sense of smell is the strongest of the senses. Terribly scary and terribly interesting. But a day will pass, another, curiosity will overpower, and the guys will begin to explore their possessions.

Of course they are fed. Pazhetnovy in special suits, with nets on their faces, speak in barely audible whispers, work daily as a food delivery service. The cubs, which were just the size of a palm, turn into weighty and very hungry animals. Huge pots of cereals are boiled almost continuously in the rescue center: milk powder, semolina, oatmeal, cow's milk. Somehow they calculated: over the summer, six to seven tons of porridge is boiled and transferred to the aviary. Tons of food - only for the summer.

During their war, instead of porridge, which is difficult to get in the wild forest, the cubs will be offered apples (half a ton of apples a day for the entire kindergarten), then they will take a break for three or four days so that the guys look for pasture. Searched by trial and error. Nearby, fields are sown with oats so that the cubs learn that it is tasty and nutritious, and gain the fat necessary for wintering. Here are raspberries, spruce shoots, nettles, aspen buds, gout. Another anthill, it turns out, you can eat it. This is an unfamiliar snake, it turns out, if you poke, it really hurts your nose. You have to study without a mother and without a person.

The kids will grow up. The Pazhetnovs will make sure that they have learned how to build lairs, look for different kinds of food, sense danger and escape, fight and defend themselves. In autumn, the cubs will be released and returned home.

Kittens who were pipetted, bathed in basins, watered from ladles, taught to eat porridge from a bowl, wiped their muzzles, massaged their stomachs, treated for parasites and colds, now they have grown up. And they must forever forget the presence of a person without whom they would not have survived.

Lola, Grumpy, Puja, Theme, Lucky, Miracle, Silent, Pahom - children who need to be released. One is stronger and stronger, the other is shy, the third is a hooligan, this insolent, that hermit. Everyone will now be alone. Wild animal in the wild.

First, the cub will be put to sleep by a shot with sleeping pills, they will take tests, weigh it so as not to let out the sick or weak ahead of time, put a yellow mark with a number on its ear, take it to its native expanses - and let it go where no one will take care of it, because he taught himself.

And the one who was the weakest and smallest also runs away from the box, bouncing funny, and suddenly stops. He looks around, rises on his hind legs and stands for a minute. And then it runs on. Into the woods, home.

What emotional triggers do successful baby food brands use? — Design on


According to 3A Business Consulting, the demand for baby food in Russia remains the highest in the world. Branding agency LINII spoke about the specifics of children's brands, as well as how companies can become successful in this market

The baby food category is one of the most conservative and at the same time highly competitive on the Russian market. The same brands remain top sellers for decades. To be among them, you need to have a good understanding of the specifics of the segment and audience.

According to the Danish consulting company 3A Business Consulting, the baby food market is growing by an average of 7% annually and by 2025 its volume will be $25.6 billion. Nielsen analysts have calculated that 46% of sales of goods from this group are in Europe and North America. Curiously, according to 3A Business Consulting, the Russian ready-made baby food market is the largest in the world, and it still remains unsaturated. The second and third places are occupied by China and the United States.

Here are five key emotional triggers for target audiences that successful brands use when designing baby food packaging.

1. Tenderness of childhood

Young mothers want to see “cuteness” and experience positive emotions when looking at the packaging. It should be associated with care and warmth. The tenderness of childhood is the most gentle direction, it is most often used when creating products for the smallest, especially newborns and children under one year old. This approach will be in demand among a wide audience, because it suits even the most conservative consumers. The main emotional trigger that baby food manufacturers rely on is the mother’s desire to immerse herself in the world of care and gentleness, to show her tenderness to the baby even through packaging.

The brand "#When I grow up" chose this direction. When designing the packaging, pastel colors were used, for different products they chose their own symbol - a cartoon character. Name idea from the following idea: mothers make every effort to develop the baby, and the main reward for them is to know that they have raised a healthy and happy person. Looking at him, they will remember the whole way of his growing up and be proud not only of him, but also a little of themselves. The packaging just praises the parents for their daily work - through the future achievements of the baby.

To bolster the confidence of moms and dads, the company chose an open-ended name that begins with the hashtag #WhenIGrow Up. As if the kid has already grown up and says to his mother: “You are great, you did everything right when I was little, thank you!”.


For each product group, a special slogan was invented, which in its own way reveals the name:

  • When I grow up, I will hug you;
  • When I grow up I will be a champion;
  • When I grow up, I will take care of you;
  • When I grow up, I will smile, I will be a traveler, I will support you;

In total, the company has more than 50 variants of such phrases. This decision gave an idea for the concept of social networks: each post of the brand begins with a similar slogan, revealing how this or that product #WhenGrowing Up helps a mother to raise her child smart, strong, beautiful.

Another prime example is Mamelle breast milk substitute.

The name of the brand and its design reflect the importance of mother's care in the very first days of a baby's life. The illustrations also emphasize this. On the packaging of products from the main line, a bear and a small bear cub are depicted, and on products from the premium line, which is based on goat's milk, a goat and a goat.

The mother-child pair allowed the company to place a stronger emphasis on consumer emotions. Other packaging details, on the contrary, emphasize the scientific approach and product safety. A "non-serious" package would not inspire the necessary confidence.


2. Natural

Companies that take this concept as a basis emphasize the safety and hypoallergenicity of their products, as well as their natural composition. The packaging usually uses light and pale colors. Such brands are often represented in a more expensive segment. They start from the desire of parents to feed the child only the most useful products that will not harm the baby.

One such natural brand is Myasli.

The name reflects the brand's specialization in meat puree, but at the same time it sounds soft and gentle, childish. The design uses natural, pastel colors. The packaging plays on the theme of rock art and the image of a small "meat hunter" who grows up strong and healthy.


3. Game

It is difficult for any mother to feed her child. Some brands take this situation as a basis and develop a toy package that will attract the attention of the baby. They expect their parents to buy their product because the child will like it, amuse them and help develop creativity. Product design should be interactive: offer the kid to play with caps or the packaging itself, similar to a toy character.

A good example is the Peek-a-boo juice bag, where the brand has placed a large image of a flamboyant character with big eyes. Such a pattern will definitely attract the attention of the child. In addition, the pouch has a valve that prevents the liquid from pouring out when pressed. So the baby can drink on his own without disturbing his mother.


4. Development

Unlike the "Play" trigger, this concept should primarily interest parents who want to teach their child something new whenever possible. Manufacturers can put various tasks, puzzles, letters or numbers on the packaging, as well as educational comics for children. On a communication level, brands that emphasize parental development emphasize that their product contains many vitamins for the growth of babies. This territory is also well suited if the company releases a new product, but on an emotional level it “catches” less than packaging that conveys tenderness and care.

5. Tradition

With this approach, brands try to satisfy the deep emotional need of consumers for familiar, familiar things that have stood the test of time. So they design the packaging to look like the labels moms and dads saw as kids.
