After the sponsors of Wellington Zoo's reptile program pulled out, Tim was forced to lay Abby off; although he did still offer to give her an attachment at the bug house, and gave her a task of collecting Rex from Ben Trent.
After a lion went missing from the Zoo, Tim became concerned over it and ordered a search for the lion. While Tim was alone giving someone an update over the phone on the missing lion, he was stalked and killed by a Future Predator and his body taken away.
Tim was quite passionate about his job at Wellington Zoo. He cared much about Abby, and he also cared about animals and disliked how some people bought pets only to neglect them or give them away.
