Winner, the last remaining polar bear at Buenos Aires Zoo sadly died on Christmas morning to hyperthermia, the cause was “the unusually high temperatures, combined with Christmas eve fireworks and the bear’s nervous temperament,” a spokesman at Buenos Aires Zoológico confirmed on Boxing Day.
Graffiti above the ticket office at Buenos Aires Zoo reads “Animal prison”.
