If I understood you well, you said Germanic "replaced" the inherited IE word by another one, is that right? Well, I think it was rather the other way around, that is, it was the IE word which didn't "catch" in Germanic.

I proposed a possible link between BS *tla:k- 'bear' and these words:
- Semitic *dalak'/g- ~ *dVk'al- 'marten; wild cat; lynx'
- NEC *dVlVgV 'a small wild animal'
- Altaic *dorVkV 'a k. of badger'
