The bear's fate in reality would probably be a little stranger. Cooped up in a laboratory for relentless testing while the government waffled over what (if any) rights it should get. He would probably die before hearings could conclude, broken out by animal rights activists and shot by guards.
The movie could have been a lot more grim than it probably was. Paddington in an orange jumpsuit with a black hood.
