Soldier Bear fought in WWII

Voytek was a bear who was adopted by Polish troops in Iran in 1943.

When Polish forces were deployed to Europe the only way to take the bear with them was to “enlist” him.

So he was given a name, rank and number and took part in the Italian campaign.

If you find yourself being attacked by a bear

If a grizzly bear attacks you, play dead. If it’s a black bear, try to scare it off. If you get caught by a polar bear, you may as well fight because you have nothing to lose.

Unfortunately, neither playing dead nor fighting back works as well against polar bears as against their smaller relatives. They’re often more interested in eating you than in neutralizing you as a threat, so playing dead might just make their job easier. Fighting back is pretty useless, too, but if you find yourself rolling around the tundra with a one-ton polar bear, you don’t have much to lose. As with other bears, try to injure its nose or eyes, and steer clear of those big, swinging paws. A single strike can kill a person.

Rebel Black Bear devours Confederate Colonel

The University of Mississippi is replacing its old mascot, Confederate ‘Colonel Reb’, with a Rebel Black Bear’. Presumably, this rebel comes sans-cause. Or at least a non-racist cause. And how could he be racist since he’s a black bear? That kind of bear can only be reverse-racist against polar bears. By using affirmative action or something. Or the USDA.
