Meet the two strangest best friends you'll ever see - Casey and Brutus. Casey is a mere man, but Brutus is a full grown grizzly. (Don't try this awesome friendship at home!) Brutus and his real brother were born in captivity at a bear reserve. Brutus was doomed to live his life in captivity. That's why Casey stepped in and changed his life.
Casey adopted Brutus and brought the little cub back to his personal wildlife sanctuary, The Montana Wildlife Grizzly Encounter Wildlife Sanctuary.
Raising Brutus personally gave Casey an extremely special relationship with the little bear. They became family over time, even if they were completely different from one another.
They enjoyed pool parties together!
... and romps in the meadow!
... and Thanksgiving dinner!
... and even Casey's wedding!
We wouldn't suggest attempting to cultivate a relationship with a bear yourself - but it's okay to wish you could just spend one day with Casey and Brutus! These two have a truly unique friendship: a bear and a man, acting as brothers.
