Public Relation story Holmer

Midland Zoo reaches out about dead polar bear  that was found this morning.

Polar bears have thrived at the Midland zoo since 1985. Our unique exhibit allows the bears to engage in natural behaviors, playing in manufactured snow, digging in gravel and hunting trout in the pool. The bears are ambassadors for their wild relatives, educating zoo visitors about these threatened animals.

Holmer was found dead an hour after his morning feeding. Midland zoo is very sad and overwhelmed about the death of Homer the polar bear.

Director of the Midland Zoo Chris P. Bacon said, “We will do everything in our power to determine how this bear dies. Animal welfare and preservation of species are our primary goals here at the zoo.”

A zoo keeper Sara Getty said,  “Homer was very curious and playful polar bear and we will miss him terribly.”

Midland Zoo is still investigating.
