Correction: there's an elite bear down towards Silverpine. Absolutely massive, and will attack if you get close to it. Level's in the 80s, so it can totally kill lower-level toons that are exploring for fun.I found this out by dying.

Yea, he's enormous and for some reason creepy. I mean, the fact that a single, lone, unique, lumbering, almost mutant monstrosity of a bear lurks up in the mountains of tirisfal waiting for its next meal is... Eerie, to say the least. It's somehow magnified by his slow walking speed and how he lies down to sleep every couple of minutes.But how did you get up there as a lowbie? Last time I checked the devs corrected the most used entrance to Tirisfal Fields around the time The Shattering hit.

Don't mind him, he's just the welcome bear. http://www.wowwiki.com/Welcome_Bear

The phenomona of welcome bears was even funnier in the Burning Crusade beta, when the Fel Reavers started out looking as bears ;) (but as mean as the fel reavers of today!)
