He appeared in several movies: Grizzly, Day of the animals, Growing up Grizzly and Legends of the Fall. He grew to 9'6" and weighed 1500 pounds. Doug & Lynn are huge advocates for the charity " vital ground " which buys up land to stop beautiful bears being hunted for trophies ! :)

“Bart the bear holds an envelope naming a winner at the 1998 Academy Awards. Bart himself was once nominated to receive an Oscar for The Bear. In that movie Bart had to be gentle to another bear’s cub. (Most bears are too aggressive to do so.) That’s as close as any animal has ever come to winning an Oscar. Animal actors are classified as props, not characters.” -National Geographic World, May 1999
