Bart the bear

Bart was born on January 19, 1977, at the Baltimore Zoo. Bart's mother had previously appeared in films, including Grizzly (1976) and Day of the Animals (1977).[citation needed] When Bart was five weeks old and weighed five pounds, he was adopted by Doug and Lynne Seus, who worked as animal trainers for films. The Seuses trained Bart using a reward and praise system. While still a cub, he appeared in the TV series The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams playing Adams' companion bear, Ben, as a cub.
