Plot Synopsis

PROJECT GRIZZLY is a one-hour reality series that follows bear trainer Jeff Watson as he embarks on a challenging mission to teach Bob and Screech, his two 700-pound rescue bears, how to survive in the deep wild. Saving the two bears at just six weeks old, he raised them as his family and now believes after three years, their destiny is to live in the wild. Emboldened by his decision, Jeff sets out to reverse the cycle of man's ownership over animals, starting with Bob and Screech. To do that, he has to undo all Bob and Screech have learned in captivity. Settled in a remote location in Indiana, he teaches Bob and Screech how to fend for themselves by hunting and fishing, learning to hibernate and ultimately break their dependence on Jeff. While Jeff understands this is an incredible and dangerous challenge, he is sometimes plagued with doubt when faced with unforeseen hurdles, but his determination to bring these bears to their true home keeps Jeff focused.
On Saturday, December 17, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, Animal Planet premiered the season finale of PROJECT GRIZZLY. In the season ender, "Letting Go," Jeff's rewilding journey with Bob and Screech nears the end, but he has one painful lesson left to teach: how to fear man. Their release date is imminent but will Bob and Screech be ready to survive on their own?
