OK, that's a scary image, but it begs the question. Why would anyone shave a bear ?
I mean, really, can you blame him for being a little grumpy ? It's cold out !

Siege,,my first thought was,,,'he ran into a fly tier !

I have no clue really but I have known vets to shave animals that were severely infected with mange. Mange is terrible and can get all over an animal ,,head to rump. Maybe the DNR or someone captured an 'ragged' bear and had to shave it to treated it,,,who knows

Photoshop ? I dunno,,looks like a real bear to me..but I'm no expert on photography. If you've ever skinned bear,,that is now the skin lays,,it's not super pliable even on the animal.

All I'm certain of,,,as I said,,if i met that thing in the woods,,,it being a bear would never cross my mind. I'd grab my crucifix and start worrying about my soul ! It's demonic looking even

Default Re: A fur coat can make the bear

I think flyguy may be right. Had a dog years back that got that 'shxt' and 'ugly,' until his fur grew back, would be a hell of an understatement.

We got the bright idea to shear our Siberian Husky's hair short one particularly hot summer. We never did it again. There was no way to look at the poor animal without laughing. Now we just keep him in the A/C as much as possible in the hot weather. Of course, these days he wants to go outside every three minutes and stay out there until we freeze to death.

With the look on that critter's face I just wonder what the guy looks like that gave him the shave and a haircut...

Hi Siege if you can hold him good & Tight I suppose some of us might Shave him however I'd need someone on Hand with a 300 WM....( Just Kidding)
I've also noticed Dogs Cats & other animals which have had their Hair Fall out some from Mange some also in Healthy Looking Animals.
Also A Mate who spent a considerable amount of Time with The Aussie Army in Vietnam also had a condition where his hair used to fall out in Clumps however even though he still has a Medical Condition he's OK & still likes a Beer or Three as well as A Half Bottle of Rum on Special occassions.
