Don’t try this at home, folks.
Naturist Casey Anderson has drawn some attention because of his best friend, an 800-pound grizzly bear named Brutus. Anderson raised Brutus from a cub after he was born at an overpopulated wildlife park.
Brutus even served as Anderson’s best man when he recently got married.
The pictures are undeniably amazing, and the story of this relationship is wonderful, but I can’t help but worry. Grizzlies may not be blood-thristy manhunters as they are often portrayed, but they are wild animals capable of turning on their keepers at any moment. Anderson is taking his life into his hands with this relationship. Maybe he sees his relationship with Brutus as worth the risk, but he needs to be especially careful about bringing Brutus near others.
As awful as it would be if Brutus turned on Anderson, he would probably never get over it if his best friend hurt or killed someone else.
For now, enjoy the photos.
