Monte - Mascot of The University of Montana.

Monte (short for Montana) is the mascot of The University of Montana. He is a grizzly bear, was born in the mountains of Missoula in the Fall of 1993. In 2002 Monte became the first winner of the Capital One Bowl's "Mascot of the Year" contest. He won again in 2004 National Champion Mascot of the Year (Capital One/ ESPN) and was nominated three other times.
He has evolved into a motorcycle riding, break dancing, back flipping, slam dunking, movie making, crowd surfing, goal post smashing, prank pulling superstar that makes the women of Montana swoon. Monte's charitable and community service activities are unmatched in college athletics. Raising thousands of "fur made" dollars for local children's charities keeps this bear quite busy all year round, and that's how he likes it.
