Bear Brown, the second oldest member of the Alaska Bush People family, shows off his softer side on Instagram with a couple of photos of his pets. In contrast to his recent outdoor selfies, the self-proclaimed “king of the extreme” captured two furry friends. The first pet is perhaps an unusual choice for anyone who doesn’t live in the countryside in Alaska. In the photo, Bear reaches out his hand as the grey squirrel gently climbs on top, pressing his forepaw into a human’s little finger. Although there is no food in Bear Brown’s palm, the creature seems content to climb onto the platform as only a well-loved pet would.
Meanwhile, in the second shot, a handsome, built, chestnut horse grazes on the ground in the sun on hay. In the foreground, a pink flower pops out of the picture, adding to the sense of serenity and wonder at nature.
Obviously, as these two photos show, Bear is and always has been an animal lover. According to The U.S. Sun, a wildfire destroyed the family’s home in Washington, D.C., on August 18, 2020. After authorities gave the family 30 minutes to search the property, Bear Brown took it upon himself to rescue as many animals as he could. With no time to spare, Bear Brown braved the flames and smoke, coaxing the frightened animals into his trailer. Brown returned, covered in smoke, with many other animals from the property. Among the rescued animals was the family’s favourite horse, North.
Bear Brown’s recent photos of his pets not only show how much he cares for them, but are also a reminder of how far he will go to protect them. In contrast to the shots taken during the fire, this week’s snapshots show a much happier and calmer time on the Brown family property.
Alaskan Bush People’s Bear Brown Shares All
In addition to Bear Brown’s animal-centric photos, she also shared a picture of herself dressed in a tuxedo at her 34th birthday party on June 10. Brown shared that this is his first birthday without his father. As a result, he admitted that this year is the hardest yet. Billy Brown, later patriarch of the family, died in February this year after suffering a seizure. In response to the tragedy, Bear Brown posted a photo of his mother and father on Instagram. In the caption, Brown noted, “He lived on his own terms, off the grid and off the land and taught us to live like that as well.”
It seems that Brown, the second eldest, derives a sense of peace and closure from his Instagram photos as he continues to share his father’s legacy through his life.
