Nice PhotoShop job, I guess polarbears are harder to spot in the snow than dobermanns, for example. But I've seen the original picture of those three bears taking it easy in the arctic in at least one sciencemagazine, so there's little doubt of this being a photomanipulation. And the work isn't too good, either. You can clearly see the borders between the polar bear-pic and the original one smile

This picture was originally taken by Tom Mangleson of Jackson Hole, Wyoming in the 1980s or early 90s. He has a gallery there and at several airport Denver, SLC.
He titled it "Bad Boys of the Artic." I think I remember that its from Hudson Bay area.
It was photoshopped into this driveway.
