Today we have two kinds of bears in Iran. One is the Asian black bear whose habitat is in Southeast of Iran near Kerman and Sistan and the other is Brown Bear. The picture on the right shows a stuffed brown bear in Tehran Nature Museum.
In 1947, Wojtek was taken to Edinburgh zoo in Scotland and he remained there until his death in 1963.
Many people came to visit this heroic bear in the zoo and he became a frequent guest of BBC’s Blue Peter-a children’s television program.
