It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved dingo, 'Simpson'. The loss of Simpson came very unexpectedly, with his health rapidly deteriorating over the past couple of days. He wasn't quite himself over the past couple of weeks so extensive health checks and close monitoring were undertaken by the veterinary team. In recent ultrasound results, it was discovered that he had a large, inoperable tumour. With Simpson's health and comfort at heart, our team made the heartbreaking decision to put him to sleep.
Our keepers will be closely monitoring the well-being of Simpson's sister, 'Tanami', over the coming days, as well as increasing keeper interaction and enrichment activity.
Our thoughts are with all of those who knew and loved Simpson, especially his dedicated keepers who shared their days with him for the last eight years.
We thank you for your support during this sad time. ❤️ #lonepinekoala #wildlife #brisbaneanyday #thisisqueensland #seeaustralia #visitbrisbane #mustdobrisbane #aussienewstoday #dingo
