Wojtek initially had problems swallowing and was fed with condensed milk from an old vodka bottle. He was subsequently given fruit, marmalade, honey and syrup, and was often rewarded with beer, which became his favourite drink. He later also enjoyed smoking (or eating) cigarettes. Special order of Wojtek was enlisted in the 22nd Artillery Supply Company. Bear reached with the army to Italy, where he distinguished himself in the battle of Monte Cassino, helping to unload ammunition and bringing shells to the guns.
