's Creature Shop was hired to make five animatronic bears to act as stand-ins for the real ones and to avoid any cruelty to animals. The animatronics were created on a tight schedule and were based on photographs of the actual bears. However, once transported to the set on the slopes of the Dolomites it became apparent that the fake bears didn't resemble the real ones enough. They ended up on screen for only a few seconds.

After the bear attacks the hunters' horses, and one of the hunters has tracked down his hurt horse and has it cornered in a small rock enclosure, rocks are visible being thrown from the left side of the shot to stir the horse up. See more
