Close encounter with Betty

This is a REAL bear. And there are no wires, no fence, no chains in between us and the bear. Awesome experience! A once in a lifetime thing too. I had to pay $21 for the original photo. This is just a picture copy taken from my cellphone. Please say hello to Betty!


Meet Betty, a Kodiak bear born in 1988.
She weighs 875 lbs and stands 6 feet tall. For a Kodiak, she is very small and petite.
Betty also has a very sweet nature and acts just like a little princess.

Her movie credits are: Dr. Dolittle 2, Grizzly Falls, Anchorman

Commercials credits includes: Super Bowl 2004 Pepsi, Super Bowl 2006 Bud Light,
Rice Krispie Treats, Napa, Toyota, and Farmer's Insurance.
Discovery Wildlife Park, Innisfail, Alberta

Wait... that is a real bear? Was she actually sitting there with you or did they photoshop the photo of your family next to her? It's an awesome picture but sounds scary!
