In these difficult real estate times, listing agents are getting increasingly creative in their attempts to grab our attention. We’ve seen houses staged with limes in every room, with (*ahem*) models lounging provocatively around the house, with Don and Betty Draper wannabes, and even a tipsy doll (one of my personal faves).

Sadly, this story doesn’t have the happy ending you’d expect. Looks like the bear was found dead in the living room at the end of the day:
You can see more photos of the bear in the house (yes, there are more!) on Trulia.
