Casey Anderson and his best man/bear

Rick at Best Hike linked to this video starring Casey Anderson, who’s been raising Brutus the grizzly for six years. The pic above is a screen grab from the video, which, among other things, features Brutus as the best man at his wedding. Wonder what his bride thought (or, better yet, her Maid of Honor?)

OK, so he’s a wildlife biologist who knows what he’s doing, but the idea of knocking about with an 800-pound hiking buddy capable of biting someone’s head off brings out my inner worrywart.
