Don't Feed the Bear - Pronoun Agreement

This sign is part of an amusing display at a restaurant in northern Michigan. The sign itself is semantically entertaining because it refers to two different senses of the word stuffed - and the resulting pun is especially appropriate at a restaurant.

The display is amusing because the bear with the walking stick and cap is just too darn cute.

Unfortunately for peeveologists, the amusement ends rather quickly. There is only one bear on the display thus the pronoun on the sign does not agree with its antecedent or the stuffed representation.
