Paddington Bear got in touch with us this morning to reveal to us how his wild friends are doing back in darkest Peru. The bear immortalised by Michael Bond in the much-loved Paddington Bear books is happily living in London these days but his wild cousins are under threat of extinction, campaigners have warned. An animal charity is calling for a clampdown on killers of the endangered Spectacled or Andean bear, after wildlife officials found a severed claw at a Colombian National Park headquarters. It was left next to an anonymous note threatening further bear killings.
