Circus Polar Bear Act

The Circus "NO SPIN ZONE": Circus Bears--Unknown Act

This photo was included in the Carl Althoff programme. I always suspected that it was a "fake" photo. If you look closely, you will see that a number of the bears appear to be "cutouts" and superimposed on the original photo. The bear far right is certainly a cutout image. Some of the seated bears in the foreground don't appear to be in the correct scale.

It is definitely doctored. I think a lot more of that was done in the "old" day's then is given credit. I think they would advertize a certain number of animals, when there was a lot of shifting out and in. There may have been X number of animals in the act, but possibly not in the cage at the same time.
