Project Main Details

Tiny 800lb grizzly bear rescued from texas furnace 
We're producing a series of web videos designed to promote the world's largest and highest rated animal sanctuary. Each of the stories will be in the animal's own voice and tell of the incredible transition from horrible living conditions to large (often as large as 25 acres) habitats where they receive incredible care and love for the rest of their life.

The goal of each video is to be playful and fun while demonstrating the horrible living conditions each animal was in prior to coming to the Sanctuary. As the video is in each animal's voice please try to mimic the animal's feel and presence.

Tiny is a giant, friendly and somewhat timid 800lb Kodiak grizzly bear that was rescued from a hot Texas facility. He's a huge fan of food (all bears are) and while outgoing can sometimes be big and scary and gruff as well. There's a few points in the script where he needs to talk with his mouth full of food as he'll be snacking throughout the video. Think Baloo the bear from the new Jungle Book (Voiced by Bill Murray)

A big 800lb grizzly bear

Script Details

The name’s… Tiny!

Yeah, yeah I get it. The biggest animal at the Sanctuary is named… “Tiny.” It’s funny I guess. I get it. 800?? lb bear called “Tiny”… It’s ironic eh?

Thing is I actually kinda like the name. Makes me sound like a nice guy, which I guess isn’t too terrible bad of a thing.

So… they asked me to tell you a little about myself... so here goes. My daily routine is as follows: I get up bright and early… oh… around 11am or noon just in time for breakfast. You know it’s the most important meal of the day right? Breakfast can last a good bit of the day and sometimes even runs smack into lunch which is pretty awesome. After breakfast sometimes Boris, Natasha and I go soak in our pool. It’s a giant freshwater swimming hole, has a waterfall and we’ve even got a huge ball in there in case we wanna practice our water polp. After that it’s time for a quick snack (muffled with a mouth full of food) cause you know… you gotta keep up your energy!

About that time it’s time for a snooze out in the sun and then it’s dinner time. I’m doing a bit of training to get ready to watch the Run into the Wild marathon here at the Sanctuary so I’m doing a LOT of carbo-loading at present. Sometimes after dinner I’ll go mess around with a stick, or climb a log or dig a hole for a while just to show the others how to do it.

Natasha! Natasha! Would you knock it off and get out of the way?!!! They’re here to talk with me. Would you move please?!! Thank you…. sheesh! You done?

Yeah… living here we’ve got a pretty sweet setup.

We didn’t always have it this good though. Long time ago the three of us lived in a run down facility over in Texas along with 22 other bears. It wasn’t anything like this place - concrete and bars and wire everywhere and hot! Oh my goodness hot. Like the inside of a bear-baking-furnace! We never had enough to eat either! I was just a shadow of the voluptuous beauty you see before you now and in fact was pretty much a hairy sack of skin and bones.

Well... the owner of the facility got in some sort of trouble with the law and was forced to close the doors to the facility. He had over 300 different animals in that place and like a total chump, he snuck out one night on us. Abandoned all 300 of us - locked in tiny cages with no food or water in the hot Texas sun. Those were hard days for Boris, Natasha and me. Honestly for a while there I didn’t think we were going to make it.

[chewing on a snack]

Well, a few days later a couple of trucks with trailers pulled up and out walks Pat, Becca, Ryan and Casey… you know them right? Well I told Boris, “Watch this… they’re here to save us!” and I was right!

Weird thing was they didn’t load us up right away but actually came down to talk with us first… you know… get to know us a bit. They didn’t have to do that but it really put my mind at ease and when the time came I was pretty happy to get out of that hot furnace of a jail and go with them. All they had to do was pour a little honey and syrup inside their trailer and I was ready to go to Colorado!!!!! [mumbling under his breath] ….of course honey and syrup is a little bit of a weak spot for me.

I remember coming into the Sanctuary for the first time and seeing our huge new home. I was blown away! For days I couldn’t stop exploring, even getting up on my tiptoes to see everything. When we got here I felt like I could eat and eat for days so that’s what I did. Of course I guess that’s what I do most every day - ha!

Honestly though I love this place. 8 square meals a day, tons of room for the three of us and the most amazing sunsets in the world. [Sighs] A bear could get used to this place.

[waddles out with a sunset in the back]

Ahhhh yes!!!… a pretty sweet set up indeed.
