Bear Teddy bear

Comment: The legend of the Teddy Bear and Roosevelt

As a young boy, I heard the story of how Teddy Roosevelt saved the life of
a young bear cub since he did not want to participate in a "canned hunt".

Imagine my surprise when somebody at work told me that Yes, Roosevelt did
spare the bear's life, but a member of his hunting party later slit the
poor bear's throat!!!

I could not find this anywhere online.

Is the death of the bear an urban legend?
