According to his family Lynn and Doug Seuss, the famous grizzly bear Bart II, who has appeared in countless movies and TV series such as “We Bought the Zoo” and “Game of Thrones”, has passed away.
In a post for the Important Ground Foundation co-founded by Seuss, it said that they are “always humble and grateful for sharing our lives with this noble grizzly bear.”
According to its website, Vital Ground mainly works in the Rocky Mountains to protect the land for grizzly bears and other wild animals.
Vital Ground said that in 2000, after their mother was killed by hunters, Bart and his sister Honey Bump were orphaned in Alaska. He was taken to Utah, where he spent his life as a 1,400-pound bear and became an ambassador for the Vital Ground Foundation.
He has appeared in many movies, including Dr. Dolittle 2, Unfinished Life, Into the West, Evan Almighty, have you heard of the Morgan family? No oars, zookeeper, Pete’s dragon, we bought one Zoo, enter “Wild”, “Grizzly Labyrinth” and “Game of Thrones” and many other TV shows and commercials,” said Vital Ground.
