Carl, who founded the organization, tells INSIDE EDITION that Bruiser has a pool in his enclosure and loves to swim with honey bear, a black bear. Bruiser is a Syrian Brown Bear and Carl says that there aren't many left in the wild. Carl got him as an education animal for his sanctuary and he has a ball playing in in the water.
