It's a fake. Look at the bear toes and then do an archive search on here that tells all about them.

It might be a good idea to let the police know about them being in your city now as mentioned in earlier post they are uncommon in the West. It would be a heads up for police and stores to keep a sharp eye open for them. The right foot on the bear is a dead give away for theses fakes
