Today the news is that a polar bear named Knut he died in front of 600 visitors. He waded into the water in his enclosure before having a short spasm and then dying in front of hundreds of zoo visitors. The poor bear was usually harassed by other three female bears in the exhibit in the Berlin Zoo
Little Knut was raised by Thomas Dörflein who took care of the baby polar bear when his mother rejected him. Knut is 6 months old – This video shows how we humans can save the planet if we want to, we just have to care.
Tragically Thomas Dörflein passed away in 2008, at the age of 44 from a heart attack. It is said that Knut would cry for Thomas every night in his enclosure. I think Knut died of a broken heart. Rest in Peace little one. You are free at last.
