Wojtek Memorials

By the time Wojtek and his companions arrived in Italy, he was a very large bear. While he did sometimes climb into the cab of army vehicles, it would have been impossible for anyone to drive safely with such a large animal next to them.

Wojtek usually rode on the company crane, leaning his front paws on the roof of the cab.
