Not exactly what I was expecting. Don’t know about you, but I’ll never be able to unsee that. It won’t haunt my dreams, but Pooh bear will never be the same…
Note: I don’t know if this bear really was shaved or if it had a case of mange or some other reason that it lost its fur. Point is, it’s a bear and it’s naked and that’s what the image of a shaved bear would be.
