The Folsom Zoo Loses Brutus the Bear

Less than a year after Ursula the black bear passed away at the Folsom Zoo, her twin brother Brutus has passed as well. Brutus had a history of health problems and had to be put to sleep today, after he stopped eating as a result of stomach cancer. Ursula and Brutus came to the zoo a few years ago when a teenager Justin Barker $25,000 through a fundraiser to build a facility. More is in the Bee and the Telegraph.
