1902年,美国总统西奥多·罗斯福在一次狩猎中毫无所获。有人把一头黑熊绑在树上好让总统射杀,总统以缺乏运动精神拒绝猎杀熊、却以让熊摆脱痛苦为由,指使随从杀了熊。此事以讽刺漫画登报。商人受漫画中可爱小熊启发,以总统小名 "Teddy's bear" 制作了玩具,这就是泰迪熊的来源。西奥多·罗斯福是任期达到四届的总统富兰克林罗斯福的五代堂兄。

In 1902, Theodore Roosevelt, president of the United states of America, sadly captured nothing while hunting big game. Someone suggested the president shoot at a black bear tied to a tree to seek a little comfort. On one hand, the president declined the offer in the name of the lack of sporting, on the other hand, he ordered one of his retinues to take the bear's life to rid it of pain. This event was drawn in a satirical cartoon and publicized on the newspaper. Inspired by the lovely bear in the drawing, a merchant made a toy named "Teddy's bear" with the president's nickname Teddy on his mind. This is the origin of Teddy bear. P.S Theodore Roosevelt is a distant cousin of Franklin Roosevelt, whose presidency lasted for 4 terms of office. 2008/12/29/ Written By 北泽 晋 Translated by 张 晓宇
