Knut the Polar Bear passes away


It’s a sad day today, I learned that over the weekend, the global sensation of a Polar Bear known as Knut, passed away over the weekend.

Back in 2007 I was pretty obsessed with Knut, as you can see by this list of postings from his early years:Polar Bear pics of the day, Some articles about Polar Bear Knut, I love that Polar Bear Knut!, and My Polar Bear pic of the Day. I think my fasination with Knut was how close to Peanut’s nickname of Nut it was. And this was a pretty cute little polar bear.

Sad news, extremely sad news, I just hope that this doesn’t happen to another polar bear in captivity.

He was pronounced dead on the scene. Zoo workers raised a screen around the bear’s enclosure, then soon after closed the zoo.
