There are no shortage of rumors for how these truly strange animals came to be, but most scholars figure it was a druid with a particular hatred for ursine creatures that bred the unlikely beasts. The earliest and most popular story of the grizzly bear rug involves a cunning noble said to have heavily sedated one, gifting it to a rival that fell prey to it that very night. Since then it has become customary to stomp upon the head of rugs made out of animals, just in case one of these beasts has slipped inside unnoticed.

A grizzly bear rug is only a foot or so wide but 10 feet tall and across, weighing a light 200 pounds.
