The Midland Zoo has had its limit of loss. With 3 unrelated deaths and 3 different animals we are taking action to each case individually and if there is improvements to be made they are already in the works.
Homer the 16 year old bear and the oldest in the zoo death was a shock seeing as so polar bears live to see 20 or 30 years of age. Homer passed away sometime after his feeding. “Homer was curious and playful polar bear and we will miss him terribly” said zookeeper Sara N Getty. “We will do everything in our power to find out why this bear died Animal welfare and the preservation of species are our primary goals here at the zoo” said Zoo director Chris P. Bacon.
We also are saying goodbye to Regina a 10 year old bob cat who had been struggling with health condition prior till her death. Regina died from renal failure last week. Kenya a 6 year old giraffe has also bid us farewell.
The zoo main focus is to improve the quality for both the animals and the people who visit.
