|For the myth in GTA SA, see Bear (GTA SA).|
Before the game's release, players have speculated that Bears would appear in GTA V. However, there is no proof to back up that bears are within the game, and not even a single bear can be seen during gameplay.
On the next-generation release of the game, modders found textures of a brown mammal in the PC version of the game but with no actual 3D model. Players have theorized that the bear was supposed to be included in the updated version of the game, but went unfinished.
One myth is that they can be rarely found at Lago Zancudo, due to the fact that they are mentioned on a tourist information board here as being part of the local wildlife.
