I could positively cry!

Recommended Posts

I don't know how it happened, German media is saying that they will do an autopsy. They are also saying that it could have been a genetic defect. Tosca (Knut's mother) has not had any babies who survived, so it may lie with her.

I'm still sad. Sad

Here are some pictures that we took of him when we visited Berlin about a year and a half ago. Knut was still a big attraction, but the people there made it impossible to find him. I think the zoo director was upset that Thomas Dörflein was getting all the attention and not him. Whatever the case, we did get to see Knut.







Even in these photos, you can still see the baby bear cub in his face. I will treasure these photos forever.

What a beautiful bear! I'm so sorry that he's gone. It's such an emotional loss when an animal dies.

I just found out that the cause of Knut's death was some form of brain damage. I'm not sure what exactly that is, but Sven said that it wasn't a stroke, but something sort of similar.

Sad We're both very sad about Knut passing on, but we were very lucky to get to see him once. When Sven read the article, he started sniffing, so I know that this is just as painful for him as it is for me. Sven's not the emotional sort, but this has hit him, too.
