Bear eats elephant poo
So why did Bear eat poo? Don't worry, it's not something he does for fun it's a survival technique. It's only as a last resort, but if you're stuck in the middle of nowhere with absolutely no other water source, you can drink the fluid from fresh animal dung!"
Scouting UK says thousands of children still want to join a pack, but there aren't enough leaders to look after them.
Bear said: "The young people in this country need them like never before, and we have more people wanting to join than there are places available.
"But by volunteering, adults can actively make a difference to young people's lives in their community, and there is no better way to be part of an adventure and have loads of fun, than with the Scouts."
