I'm glad Brutus is safe and sound but don't know how I feel about him living as a family member.

Unfortunately people can't "read" bears because apparently they have no muscles of facial expression.
I knew a man whom we called "uncle Peter", who had spent 20 years in prison camps in Siberia doing things like chopping down trees, digging the Volga canal and even sewing clothes.
He adopted and orphan bear that became inseparable from him. He used to sleep in a bear hug every night.
Eventually Peter got worried about what would happen to the bear if anything happened so that he could no longer care for the bear. It was far too familiar and friendly with people. After all, it was people who shot the bear's mother. Because of this, with a lot of heartbreak, he gave it away to work in a circus.
This just shows that all animals, including us are connected and can learn to love and understand each other.
