Casey Anderson spent his childhood in his hometown, surrounded by animals, which earned him the nickname ‘the animal magnet’. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at Montana State University in Bozeman, from which he graduated with a BA degree in Wildlife Biology in 1995.
Right after graduation, Casey was hired by the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks as a wildlife rehabilitation technician, and parallel with that, he worked in several privately owned wildlife parks as an animal trainer and keeper, which marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth. Subsequently, he began to train Brutus the (grizzly) Bear, and soon adopted him from one of the wildlife parks, as he was destined to be euthanized or to spend his life in captivity. Thus, thanks to that wonderful gesture, he became the trainer of Brutus, and his career as an animal trainer began.
Additionally, Casey decided in 2004 to establish the sanctuary Montana Grizzly Encounter Rescue and Educational Sanctuary in Bozeman, where he began to train Brutus alongside several other bears. Brutus soon reached enormous popularity, as he appeared in a number of television documentaries, advertising commercials and film titles, such as “Wild” (2008), and “Expedition Wild” (2010-2014), among others, which added a considerable amount to Casey’s net worth. Moreover, they together starred in the 2008 film ““Iron Ridge”. In 2010, he published the book “The Story Of Brutus: My Life With Brutus The Bear And The Grizzlies Of North America”, about their life together, and his founding of the sanctuary.
Apart from this, Casey also became well-known for working at Associated Television International (ATI), for which he led two expeditions for the TV series “Untamed!”. In 2006, Casey made his debut appearance with Brutus in the TV series “Wild”, on the National Geographic Channel. He was quickly hired as the regular producer and host of the wildlife documentary TV series “Expedition Wild”, which was aired on the same channel, and later on the Nat Geo WILD, ABC as a part of other TV series “Litton’s Weekend Adventure”, among others, all of which added a considerable amount to his net worth.
To speak further about his career, Casey started to work as the executive producer and host of another documentary TV series entitled “America The Wild With Casey Anderson” in 2013. Most recently, he became the co-owner and executive producer of VisionHawk Films.
Beside that, Casey appears in various reality TV series, including “Dude, You’re Screwed”, “Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan”, and “Late Night With Conan O’Brien”, among others, all of which have increased Casey’s wealth.
