The premiere episode of Expedition Wild features naturalist Casey Anderson and his best friend Brutus, a 900-pound grizzly bear. Trek to Alaska's Kodiak Island, where Casey teaches Brutus the ways of his wild relatives. This population of more than 3,500 bears offers Casey a chance to witness how they catch wild salmon and feed their young. Casey then returns to Montana to see if he can teach a bear raised in captivity to fish for himself, in an aquarium designed for that purpose.
