A beekeeper in Turkey made a discovery thanks to a group of honey-stealing bears. For many years, he tried to stop bears from stealing the honey his bees made. He found that the bears particularly liked the best quality, most expensive honey. He struggled to keep the bears and their sweet teeth away from his beehives. He used metal cages, protective storage houses, and apples and other fruit as a decoy but nothing worked.
The bears cost the beekeeper $10,000 in three years. He wanted to know more about their tastes. He put bowls out for them, containing different types of honey, and jam. Time after time, the bears chose the most expensive honey - the premium Anzer honey. This is the most expensive honey in the world. It is from the nectar of flowers that only grow in the mountains. It has many medicinal powers. Despite his losses, the beekeeper loves the bears.
