Can anyone shed any light on the tradition of giving stage winners a stuffed bear*? Why? When did it start?

In the TdF, isn't it a stuffed lion, because one of the sponsors is Credit Lyonnais?

The UCI used to hide lance's supply of drugs inside them, and pass it to him in fornt of everyone just so nobody would suspect, they initially tried to use real stuffed dead animals but it made the children cry.
