Wojtek the Persian Bear

It has been many months since I highlighted an animal in my monthly Everyday Heroes postings. When I read the story about Wojtek, a bear cub found in Iran in 1942 and adopted by soldiers of the 22nd Artillery Supply Command of the Polish II Corps, I couldn't resist making him my October 2015 Everyday Hero.

I never fail to be amazed at how animals--even supposedly wild, dangerous animals--can relate to humans and perform heroic feats that defy imagination.

I hope you enjoy this tale about Wojtek which is well-told in the photos and captions below.
