Brookfield Zoo community mourns passing of 27-year-old brown bear


CHICAGO — The Brookfield Zoo community is lamenting the passing of a 27-year-old brown bear named Jim, who greeted millions of guests during his time at the sanctuary. 

Animal care and veterinary staff decided to euthanize the bear due to declining health. The zoo staff said the bear’s mobility had significantly reduced due to severe arthritis.

The bear was just shy of his 28th birthday.
