Grizzly bear is best man at wedding


Casey Anderson, a modern-day Grizzly Adams, picked a half-ton bear to be best man at his wedding to Hollywood actress, Missi Pyle.

Anderson 33, hand-reared Brutus from a cub after he was born into captivity and faced euthanasia because he couldn’t be released into the wild.

The pair have become so close that the seven-foot eight inch grizzly bear was best man at his wedding to the 36-year-old actress.

Brutus, who weighs 900lbs (0.45 tonnes), stole the show at the marriage in Swan Valley, Montana, where he ate the wedding cake in front of 85 guests.

Naturalist Casey, who lives in Montana, America, even admitted he even owed his “best friend” Brutus for introducing him to his future wife.

He said: “When Brutus was born, it was a dead end street because he couldn’t be released into the wild so had to remain in captivity or be euthanased.

“So I came up with the idea to rescue him and build a home to save other grizzly bears and since then he’s completely changed my life.

“I take him for long walks. I swim with him and I’ve even started teaching him how to fish. I feel like his father in a way – but in reality I’m more of his friend.

“Now I owe him for introducing me to my wife and he was best man at my wedding – he really has changed my life.

“With other bears he plays rough but I’m not scared of him because when I wrestle him he knows he needs to be a lot more gentle.

“He doesn’t want to hurt the people that he loves and I think he does love me after all the years and time we have spent together. He’s my best friend.”
