Keeping this in consideration, what happened to Bart the Bear?

Bart the Bear is perhaps one of Hollywood's most remarkable animal stars. Sadly, Bart died in 2000 of cancer at the age of 23 during filming of Animal Planet's Growing Up Grizzly (2001). His namesake is Little Bart. Little Bart's sister is named Honey Bump.

Also, did Will Ferrell really wrestle a bear? The bear, a 5-year-old male named Rocky, had been trained to wrestle with experienced handlers like Miller. But Ferrell is quick to point out that he never actually filmed with the bear. "Everyone was saddened, and everyone thought that," he remembered.

Just so, why did they euthanize Bart the Bear?

In October 1998, Bart was diagnosed with cancer, and later underwent surgery twice to remove tumors from his right paw. Cancer reoccurred, taking away his strength and appetite causing him to not want to take the pain medication, so he was euthanized on May 10, 2000, at the age of 23. He was buried on the Seus' ranch.

Is Brutus the bear still alive?
