Jardin des Plantes, Paris

The artist is Emmanuel Fremiet (1824-1910), who specialized in very dramatic scenes including animals. The title is "Cheneur d'Oursons." Why would hunters specifically want bear cubs? What a sad scene. Well, the hunter is getting his, although it looks as though he's stuck something awful (looks a big screw) into the she-bear's throat.
