Debby, our beloved polar bear, the pride and joy of Winnipeg’s Zoo is gone forever.
She came to Winnipeg in 1967 as a young cub and stayed here her whole life. She holds a Guiness Book record for the oldest polar bear in the world.
Debby was 42 when her major organs failed and she had to be put to sleep.
We all miss her terribly and a celebration of her long life is planned for this coming Saturday. I’m pretty sure most of us will go to say good bye.
Our Zoo will never be the same without Debby.
She will live in our hearts and I believe her spirit will always fly freely around Assiniboine Park.
