Never mind, Cedric

Turns out that, in addition to updates on this being surprisingly frequent, Cedric the Tasmanian devil is not immune to the cancer afflicting his population.

Two coin-sized tumours were cut out of his face and, although it is hoped he will make a full recovery, it casts doubt on much of the research work conducted over the past two years, the BBC’s Nick Bryant reports from Sydney.

Double update update: Actually, I was getting articles from a recent blog post which had out-of-date references. Cedric proved to be a dead-end close to a year ago.
