Oddly enough,after having a statue for some time in Edinburgh Zoo, woitek the bear is getting a bit of publicity. Images of a big bad bear biffing the boshe spring to mind.....
A campaign has been launched to build a permanent memorial to a bear which spent much of its life in Scotland - after fighting in World War II.
The bear - named Voytek - was adopted in the Middle East by Polish troops in 1943, becoming much more than a mascot.
