Wing Chun Bear Strikes Back!

Wing Chun have hints and evidence of animal styles in its techniques, such as the Crane, snakes, horse stance....etc. But you dont hear them say Bear. 

Bong Sau & Tan Sau, blocking both strikes of the Bear on the left
The right bear cutting through the left's defenses and went for a straight punch in the Center Line
I have a feeling the founder of Wing Chun might have seen bears fight. But because it looked too masculine and aggressive maybe she decided not to say the style derives from a burly bear. Or people may not try to court her back in the day..........It's just my philosophical theory is all....
