The bear that went to war


​15.  This is a photograph of Wojtek at Edinburgh Zoo.


Wojtek is in this photograph – he is the lighter coloured bear on the left-hand side, not the dark bear near the centre of the image.​​

According to Aileen Orr, author of Wojtek the Soldier Bear: Polish War Hero,​ there were two bears introduced into Wojtek's enclosure, but he ignored them.
