Nope,trick photo probably.Heck,shortfaced bears never came close to that size.Nice pic and thread,but never was there a brown bear that got big as
that looks.Shortfaced bears were only about 15 feet standing on their hind legs IIRC,and they were the largest known bears,larger than brown or polar
I thought that it would be a good distraction for some of the members here to see what came up , The picture came from a now forgotten youtube video
and the book title has long been forgotten by me but was old nearly 30 years ago .
