Another love story.

This is what happens when an animal trainer finds a bear cub.

(Today’s post has a number of very beautiful photographs. However, it is much better presented to you, dear reader, as a standalone post rather than under the umbrella of a Picture Parade.)

Thanks to Suzann for sending this on to me.

A Man Found Two Bear Cubs Beside Their Dead Mother.

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.

This is Casey and the little cubs. Unfortunately, only one survived and Casey 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 out to dinner (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. If Casey and Brutus made you smile, then you should probably spread the joy and share this.

This is a lovely story. Shame all humans aren’t this kind and understanding. Though many are and this is a lovely example of such a person.
