Brutus the Brown Bear

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

My office is doing some work with Casey Anderson who’s probably best known for hosting Expedition Grizzly on the National Geographic Channel. Yesterday we took a group field trip to Montana Grizzly Encounter, a sanctuary that he created for brown bears just outside of Bozeman. This is Brutus, a 900-pound brown bear that Casey rescued when he was small enough that he could fit in Casey’s hand.
