Man Develops Friendship With A Grizzly Bear
Holly Reyes 2/20/2016
Casey Anderson had no idea how much his life would change the day he met a grizzly bear cub out in the wild. Six years ago Casey found little Brutus the bear cub all alone without a mother. He took him into his caring arms, and that's when their friendship began. Their relationship has grown strong over the years, and they now have an unbreakable bond. Trusting each other as man who grew up known as the “Animal Magnet” and a wild animal who weighs 800 pounds, they have an incredibly unique story that has inspired so many others.
No ordinary man would desire a bear to grow up in his own home, but that's what Casey did until the day Brutus became too large to stay. Even then Casey remained like a faithful friend and went out of his way to build a Montana Grizzly Encounter Rescue and Educational Sanctuary for Brutus where people can come learn about bears and wildlife.
Being surrounded by Montana wildlife growing up, and studying biology in college, Casey was just waiting for the opportunity for something like this. His daring rescue was returned with the most amazing friendship that has brought so much joy.
