Jazmin Velasco

Byron & Bear


As a student at Cambridge Univeristy, Lord Byron was extremely dismayed that he was refused to keep a dog in the halls of residence, so, finding a loophole in the ever extensive rulebook he decided to instead keep a brown bear, who much to the amusement and horror of the other students, he would frequently walk around the college grounds, and become strong pals.
