"The beloved four-year-old died yesterday afternoon in front of hundreds of visitors, taking keepers, animal experts and fans by surprise. The life expectancy of polar bear in the wild is between 15 and 20 years, but animals in captivity normally live even longer because they are not exposed to hunger, thirst or infections.
"I can't comprehend what happened there. He was happy before, there were no signs of anything it's so shocking," said fan Eveline Litowski, who said she had come to the zoo to find out more about Knut's early death."

It's really sad. Especially with the enormous cult of fans he has here in Germany. But when I heard comments today from people that they cried over it while having wasted not a word on Japan in the last week or such, I was pretty PO'd.

Anyway, I'll be waiting to hear what he died off. Some say it's because his caretaker died surprisingly.
