    Ooops sorry.

    That's really sad about Knut. He was a cute little bear (that grew up into a cute big bear).

    Poor guy. He was the most adorable cub on the planet. I hope he didn't suffer.

    Sorry I duplicate posted about this! My youngest son was a big fan of Knut! The book about him is his favorite. So sad! His keeper that raised him died of a heart attack in 2008. A great pair, they will both be missed very much. [​IMG]
