I heard Winnie the Pooh was a real bear. Does anyone know if that was true. I heard a Canadian soldier brought him to England as a mascott and AA Milne was inspired by him at the zoo

winnie the pooh based on a stuffed animal owned by the author Alan Alexander Milnes' son Christopher. Christopher Robin is also based on the little boy
