As some of you might know, in the early 90’s June had a bear as a pet. Yes, a bear! In time the animal got too big and clumsy and playing started to be really dangerous. So, she was forced to give it away. After several enquiries a zoo in Switzerland was chosen for as a refuge for the bear. Turkish Airlines was helpful with the transport and since then the bear lives in Switzerland in the zoo of Bois du Petit-Château. From a friend she heard that a bear in this zoo had to be euthanised and she was very sad, thinking about her beloved pet. Fortunately, she learnt later that the this was Leila, the mate of her bear, who still lives, but is now single.
