[Monarch, the San Francisco Examiner Bear, in Captivity]
C. Hart Merriam Pictorial Collection

A photograph of the well-caged Monarch in Golden Gate Park. Captured by Examiner journalist Allen Kelly in October, 1889, on orders from William Randolph Hearst, and named after the newspaper, "The Monarch of the Dailies," he lived 22 years in captivity in San Francisco until he was euthanized in 1911. His skeleton was donated to Berkeley's Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, and his overstuffed pelt has for many years been on display at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park.
