It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that beloved polar bear Knut is dead. I have written about Knut 10 times, starting when he was a baby and being threatened by "animal-rights" activists. I had regular updates on the cutest bear ever.
Then he grew up to be an adult and thus not so cute. My last update was an article that said Knut was turning into a "publicity-addicted psycho bear." He was found today dead in the water - did he kill himself? I can only wonder if he ended up like so many self-destructive, troubled child stars.
He exists now only in our memories, as a cute, lovable baby bear.
MSNBC has a nice Knut retrospective photo gallery here.
