Heat wave kills City Zoo polar bear

Winner, the last polar bear living in the Buenos Aires City Zoo died early on Christmas morning "due to the unusually high temperatures, combined with Christmas eve fireworks and the bear’s nervious temperament,” a communiqué released today confirmed.

Winner was a 14 year old male polar bear who had arrived from Santiago, Chile, and was one of the zoo’s feature attractions.

“With deep sadness we announce that early yesterday morning our polar bear died. He was beloved by the entire staff of the Buenos Aires City zoo. The cause of death following a necropsy was established as hipertemia, which is influenced by the environment and by the bear’s own temperament.

Unfortunately, as a consequence of the unusually high temperatures, along with fireworks from December 24th and the bear’s nervious temperament caused the bear’s death.”
