Another historical Theodore Roosevelt hunting cartoon pic.
For background information, this was a joke played by friends of TR. He was off to hunt wild turkeys. Friends released several domesticated turkeys on his property. TR caught onto their high jinx and a cartoonist brought the event to the public with this cartoon..
The little bear, aka "Teddy Bear", became the iconic signature of the cartoonist.
