came to where they tied the bear, he was angry at what he saw. The bear
was now bleeding. He refused to claim the bear for himself, and for
anyone else to claim it either. Theodore felt sympathy for the bear
and decided to kill it with a hunting knife to put it out of pain.
Reporters that saw this happen spread the news around the country. Clifford
Berryman, who was a cartoonist made a cartoon of this event. Morris
and Rose Michtom, who owned a toy store, saw the cartoon and Rose decided
to create two stuffed bears. They wrote a letter to Roosevelt asking
if they could use the name "Teddy's Bear" for new creation.
Today we still use the name Teddy Bear. The Teddy Bear is one of the
most popular and loved stuffed animal in the country.
