Naturalist Casey Anderson adopted a grizzly bear named Brutus and brought him home. Now, the two are best friends, and Brutus has become part of the family.
WARNING: We do not advocate having a pet bear, or even having a casual bear acquaintance. Even though bears are adorable and lumber around like big stuffed animals they can totally kill you and won't think twice about it. Also, you should never, ever get in a jacuzzi with a bear. That should go without saying.
This is Casey Anderson and his pet bear Brutus
Casey met Brutus and his brother when they were just cubs.
Casey decided to adopt Brutus!
At Casey's wildlife sanctuary Brutus had more freedom to do bear stuff, like swim.
And roll around in a field.
Brutus is a pretty big fan of fields.
Now, no matter what your brain might be telling you, this isn't photoshopped.
Brutus was even best bear at Casey's wedding!
Brutus is not your average bear.
Casey understands the risks of having a grizzly bear for a best friend, but wouldn't have it any other way.
Brutus still lives with Casey in Montana and their man/bear bromance is still going strong.
