Talkeetna, Alaska - Leaning Bear Statue

I found this bear, but it seems that they straightened him up. Although they did that, they did not give him fresh paint, so he's mostly the grey of the wood with some brown-ness to him.

We'll keep calling him Leaning Bear. The winters in Talkeetna may tilt him again.

Outdoor statue of an upright bear leans so far forward that it's backside has been chained to the ground to keep it from falling over.

Just before you go into town at the Visitors Center is a bear that has a good reason for being chained down.
