See this **** is cool, but i sometimes worry for the owner because of instinctual drift being a possible occurrence. Is imprinting the factor that makes the bear tame and kind to the guy?

Yes. The bear has been socialized, not domesticated, so its natural instincts are still very real, but it's basically the same concept as taking a wild fox from its litter and raising it. Yes, because it is a wild animal, it will still act like one, but will be tame for and affectionate to its owner. This guy could never release the bear into the wild, though.

So, someday, the bear could indeed rip him to shreds, but that's all up to how the situation could come into play. If the bear gets stressed out, a mauling is set to a ticking time bomb.

I believe it's more a case of taking away what normally makes it act vicious. Bears kill to 1: feed, 2: defend cubs, since it has no cubs and he feeds it, it's learned since it's very young that killing the ***** is counterproductive.

I read somewhere once about an old technique for capturing wild goats back in the day, you'd dig a hole, wait for one to fall in, let it starve and right as it was about to die you'd feed it and it'd realise that it wuvd you..
