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.
Casey met Brutus and his brother when they were just cubs.
Brutus and his brother were born sadly in captivity at a bear reserve. The reserve was heavily overpopulated and Brutus was destined to spend most of his life caged.
Casey decided to adopt Brutus and bring him home to his personal wildlife sanctuary, The Montana Wildlife Grizzly Encounter Wildlife Sanctuary.
Because Brutus was born in captivity he lacks a wild animals' natural wariness around humans. Over the years, Brutus has become a big furry family member.
Brutus was even best bear at Casey's wedding!
Casey understands the risks of having a grizzly bear for a best friend, but wouldn't have it any other way.
He says: "It's the biggest misconception. When you hear about a grizzly bear, it's because they have done something wrong... We're trying to cure the myths, educate the public."
