Vital Ground works predominantly in the Rocky Mountains to preserve land for grizzly bears and different wildlife, its website says.
In 2000, Bart was orphaned in Alaska together with his sister, Honey Bump, after their mom was killed by a hunter, Vital Ground mentioned. He was delivered to Utah the place he lived out his life as a 1,400-pound bear and turned the ambassador for The Vital Ground Foundation.
He was “featured in many motion pictures, 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,” Vital Ground mentioned.
Bart died “silently and naturally” alongside the banks of Daniel Creek in Utah earlier this week. He is survived by his sister Honey Bump and many on the basis who cherished him, his obituary says.
