Comet the bear

Camperdown Wildlife Centre’s male bear Comet has sadly passed away at the age of 30. He was diagnosed last week as having a tumour in his abdomen and deteriorated rapidly over the weekend.

Comet, a European Brown bear, arrived at Camperdown from Edinburgh Zoo when he was 16 months old and was later joined by Star from the Highland Wildlife Park.

Aileen Whitelaw, Wildlife Centre Manager said

“Comet has been an important ambassador for Camperdown Wildlife Centre for almost 30 years and will be sorely missed.”
