Kingston Bear Trail’s ‘Spectrum’ vandalised – but saved by local community

The local community has rallied behind us to get Spectrum back where it belongs

We’re really upset to share that Spectrum, one of the bears that is part of our Bear Trail had been targeted by vandals and thrown into the River Thames over the weekend of the 13th April 2024. Fortunately, there is CCTV coverage and we are liaising with the police on this. It’s been heart-warming to read all your concerned messages, we know how loved the beautiful bears are.

We want to say a HUGE thank you to the wonderful community of Kingston who rallied to help save this lovely bear from the Thames. We wouldn’t have been able to get him back on dry land without them!

Spectrum has now been admitted to the bear hospital for a check up, but we’ll let you know if he’s able to return to his rightful place in Kingston. Follow our social channels for any updates!
