^His mum refused him and his brother. His brother died.


His stepfather was found dead in his apartment today. He was sick before, but the definite cause of death is not known yet.

This is so sad, really.

I saw it on the news yesterday and they also showed a documentary about Knut's birth and how he was raised by his "surrogate father", which was very sweet and moving.

Wasn't there a story not long back about how Knut being raised by humans had been detrimental?

The cause of death was a thrombose that led to a undersupply of the heart, thus causing a heart attack. It's also called Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD), since it's happening within less seconds and can happen anytime to anybody.

Now Knut passed away:
Quote:
Berlin Zoo's celebrity polar bear Knut is dead. The zoo's bear expert, Heiner Klös told the German news agency DPA that the bear collapsed and died on Saturday while in the water in the zoo's polar bear enclosure.

Klös told DPA that between 600 and 700 visitors had witnessed Knut's death. The zoo's staff were shocked, he said.

The cause of death is currently unclear. According to Klös, the polar bear was alone in the compound at the time. The three other bears that shared his enclosure -- his mother Tosca and two other bears named Katyusha and Nancy -- had already been shut in. The zoo plans to perform an autopsy on Knut to clarify the cause of death.

"It's terrible," Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit told the Berlin newspaper BZ. "He had a special place in all of our hearts. He was the star of Berlin Zoo."

Knut, who recently turned four, became world famous when his mother rejected him shortly after his birth in December 2006. Part of his fame was due to the bear's close relationship to Thomas Dörflein, the photogenic zookeeper who became his replacement mother and hand-reared the cub. Dörflein died unexpectedly in September 2008 at the age of 44.
