Bart the Bear II, starring in countless movies and TV shows, dies

In a post on The Vital Ground Foundation, co-founded by Seus, it said they are “forever humbled and grateful to have shared our lives with this noble grizzly.”

Vital Ground works predominantly in the Rocky Mountains to preserve land for grizzly bears and other wildlife, its website says.

In 2000, Bart became an orphan in Alaska with his sister, Honey Bump, after their mother was killed by a hunter, Vital Ground said. He was brought to Utah, where he lived his life as a 1,400-pound bear and became an ambassador for The Vital Ground Foundation.

He was “featured in many films, including Dr. Dolittle 2, An Unfinished Life, Into the West, Evan Almighty, Have You Heard About the Morgans ?, Without a Paddle, Zookeeper, Pete’s Dragon, We Bought a Zoo, Into the Wild , The Grizzly Maze and Game of Thrones, as well as many other TV shows and commercials, “said Vital Ground.

Bart died “quietly and naturally” along the shores of Daniel Creek in Utah earlier this week. He is left by his sister Honey Bump and many on the foundation who loved him, says his obituary.
