The heart-warming story of the incredible
friendship between National Geographic star Casey
Anderson and an 800-pound grizzly bear named Brutus, as
seen on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Animal Planet, and
Good Morning America.
Casey Anderson, the
host of National Geographic’s Expedition Grizzly
met a month-old bear cub in a wildlife preserve in 2002,
whom he affectionately named Brutus. Little Brutus was
destined to remain in captivity or, more likely, even
euthanized due to overpopulation at the preserve. Anderson,
already an expert in animal rescue and rehabilitation, just
could not let that happen to Brutus, who looked like a
"fuzzy Twinkie." From the beginning it was clear something
special existed between the two. And so, Anderson built the
Montana grizzly encounter in Bozeman, Montana, especially
for Brutus, so that he, and others like him, could grow up
"being a bear." And so the love story began.
together, Anderson and Brutus will wrestle, swim, play, and
continue to act as advocates for grizzly protection and
education, be it through documentaries like Expedition
, appearances on Oprah
, or in this inspiring book, which
promises to be an intimate look into Anderson's
relationship with Brutus and a call to action to protect
these glorious animals and the natural world they live in.
The Story of Brutus
proves that love
and friendship knows no bounds and that every care must be
taken to protect one of nature's noblest creatures. 16 pages
