Movie talks over World War II mortar-carrying bear

A beer-drinking bear who saw action in World War II could be in line to be the subject of a Hollywood film.

Wojtek – dubbed the “Soldier Bear” – was adopted by Polish troops and helped them carry ammunition at the Battle of Monte Cassino.

After the war he lived in Scotland at Hutton in Berwickshire, before ending his days in Edinburgh Zoo.

Belfast writer and director Brendan Foley has bought the rights to the bear’s “remarkable story”.

Wojtek – also known as Voytek – was rescued as a cub in the Middle East in 1943.
