A December 28th article in London's Daily Mail might be of some interest to Your Grace:

"It is reported that an alcoholic Russian bear has kicked its vodka habit after a millionaire animal admirer paid for him to be treated at a drying-out clinic. Potapych developed his habit after his keeper started sharing his daily bottle of vodka with him by pouring it into his food. The bear then started helping himself, and the pair would often be seen staggering around the park."
