Wojtek – the Bear That Went to War

“Rick” sent this in and I found it very interesting. Did some research and it turns out it is absolutely true.

I get stuff like this all the time with about half being real. Really cool story. I can’t help but think of the affection the soldiers had for this bear and the bear for them. Some horrible things happened during World War II. This isn’t one of them.

  1. So now everyone knows why I’m looking for that orphan cub to drink beer with me on the porch.

    Nice Rick. Thanks for sending it to Rourke.


  2. Loved the story. I had “heard” about this bear, but thought it was one of those “urban type legends” that just started floating around. “And how was your day, “private?” “A real bear, sir”.
