A naturalist named Casey Anderson stumbled across two grizzly bear cubs nestled beside their dead mother in the wild mountains of Alaska. Casey couldn't just leave these little guys to die in the wilderness, so he made the brave decision to take them with him. He trains animals for a living, so he knew he would be able to give these cubs a real shot. That simple decision, borne out of grief, turned into one of the most unique and adorable rehabilitation stories we have ever laid eyes on. Warning: you'll want to adopt a bear after this. You probably shouldn't.
This is Casey and the little cubs. Unfortunately, only one survived and he decided to adopt him.
He named him Brutus.
Brutus grew up as part of the family, albeit a very fuzzy part.
It was Casey's job to train animals, so raising and training Brutus was normal for him.
Over the years, they became close friends and brothers.
And Brutus got the run of the pool.
Brutus grew to be so close to Casey, he was even his best man (bear) at the wedding.
It may have made the bride a little nervous...
But she was probably glad Brutus wasn't capable of taking him to a strip club (no thumbs).
Brutus also gets a place of honor at the Thanksgiving table.
Life is good for this not-so-average bear.
You'll be hard pressed to find a situation cooler than being best friends with a killer grizzly bear. Source: Casey Anderson / Join Casey on Facebook If Casey and Brutus made you smile, then you should probably spread the joy and share this.
