Bozeman – The Montana Grizzly Encounter (MGE) provides a home for rescued grizzly bears and offers the public a chance to learn about them. Founded in 2004 by Casey Anderson, Ami Otten, and John Ross, the sanctuary has been home to eight bears: Brutus, Bella, Max, Lucy, Jake, Maggie, and twins Sheena and Christi.
Currently, the shelter is home to Max, Bella, and Maggie. The other bears sadly died, but their lives were filled with enrichment in the sanctuary.
Each bear has a very distinct personality and a different back story. They range greatly in size and appearance.
Max was born in 2019 on Unimac Island, Alaska. He lost his mother at a few months of age and, unable to survive alone in the wild, was rescued by MGE. Max is nearly 8 feet tall and about 1,000 pounds, and can reach up to 1,500 pounds.
Paige Davidson, an employee at the get-together, said, “Max is like a baby. He’s very emotional. All our bears are emotional but, like any child, he loves to play and loves attention…and that’s his personality, he’s a very sweet boy.”
