Folsom Zoo’s Ursula the Bear dies at age 23
Ursula the bear, a popular black bear recently moved in to the Folsom Zoo, was put to sleep this week after an incurable infection got the best of her. Ursula is perhaps best known through then-teenager Justin Barker of Elk Grove, who raised enough money to move Ursula from her cage in Roseville to the Folsom Zoo in 1998. Ursula was one of 5 bears at the Folsom Zoo, and will be missed. More information can be found in the Sacramento Bee.
