The Midland Zoo seems a little more gloomy today after a beloved polar bears light has burnt out.

A 16-year-old polar bear known as Homer was found dead in his habitat this morning at around 7 AM. His cause of death is unknown, but it is believed that it was because of old age.

Head zoo veterinarian had this to say; “The zoo will perform a necropsy to try to determine the cause of death. The results will not be available for several weeks”. Polar Bears have been a key attraction of the zoo since it opened in 1985.

“We will do everything in our power to determine how this bear died. Animal welfare and preservation of species are our primary goals here at the zoo”. A quote from the Director of the Midland Zoo.
