Casey Anderson has had a passion for wild animals since he was a boy growing up in Montana. He especially loves bears and over the years has worked on conserving the animals and help educate people about them. And he’s got a unique personal connection with bears through his friendship with Brutus, an 800-pound grizzly bear who he’s reared since the bear was a cub.
Casey found Brutus next to his dead mother in the Alaskan mountains. He rescued the cub and cared for him. When Brutus grew too big to stay in Casey’s home, he established the Montana Grizzly Encounter Rescue and Educational Sanctuary.
The two are an inseparable team and work together to educate the public about grizzly bears. They have a bond that’s simply amazing to watch. Wait until you see some of the family photos of Brutus and Casey in the video below, including Brutus’ special role at Casey’s wedding!
