Wojtek (Soldier Bear) - In 1942, a local boy found a bear cub near Hamadan, Iran. He sold it to the soldiers of the Polish Army stationed nearby for a couple of canned meat tins. As the bear was less than a year old, he initially had problems swallowing and was fed with condensed milk from an emptied vodka bottle. The bear was fed with fruits, marmalade, honey and syrup, and was often rewarded with beer, which became his favorite drink. He also enjoyed smoking and eating cigarettes. He enjoyed wrestling and was taught to salute when greeted. The bear became quite an attraction for soldiers and civilians alike, and soon became an unofficial mascot of all units stationed nearby. With the company he moved to Iraq and then through Syria, Palestine and Egypt.

A whale washed up at South Puget Sound in 2006. South Puget Sound is a beautiful name for a town.
(Edit: selftitleddebut: South Puget Sound isn’t the name of a town. It means the southern part of Puget Sound, in Washington State (this picture was probably taken just off of one of the several islands, possibly Anderson Island).
