"Hey guys, and welcome back to another episode of Random Knowledge! Our names are Emy and S.G. and we will be talking about a brave hero, Wojtek the Bear!"
Stop making that weird face! You are making me laugh, hahaha!
"Wojtek (Voytek) was a nickname, given to a bear, which stood for a happy warrior, an old Slavic name. He was a 500-600 pound brown bear adopted by the 22nd Transport Company’s Artillery in the Polish 2nd Corps."
"Polish prisoners had encountered an Iranian boy who had found the cub and had found his mother shot by hunters. One of the civilian refugees was taken with the cub, and she prompted a lieutenant to buy the young bear, where he had spent the next three months in a Polish refugee camp near a place called Tehran, under this woman’s care."
"The bear would be fed and treated as he were a human and would sleep with the other soldiers if they were cold during the night. He also enjoyed wrestling with these soldiers and was also taught by those men to salute when greeted. Wojtek (Voytek) had his own caregiver who was assigned to look after him. He enjoyed his life."
"He would also break into communal shower huts and turn on the shower on his own, and this was a problem because the water was rationed and this sometimes caused water shortages. Then, he became a hero when he caught an Arabian spy in the showers as he was going to see if anybody was in there. He growled at the spy, and the soldiers caught him when they woke up from the growls."
"He was a funny and amazing bear. It is hard to believe that he had actually existed. He must have helped out the soldiers emotionally and mentally! He's hilarious!"
"Haha! I'm sure I would have been best friends with him! There you go everyone! Wojtek the Bear! See you until the next episode of Random Knowledge!"
