Popular Berlin polar bear found dead in mysterious circumstances

Knut lived in Berlin's zoo. He was 4 and raised by zookeepers since a cub after his mother rejected him
Now reports say the attention-loving polar bear was found dead in a pool in his cage at the Zoologischer Garten Berlin Saturday, with no immediate cause of death announced.
This is awful," said Berlin's mayor Klaus Wowereit said, according to the Sydney (Australia) Herald. "We had all taken him to our hearts. He was the star of the Berlin Zoo."
Most reports say Knut was alone when he died, as visitors watched him suddenly fall into the water. The celebrity news site TMZ.com carried news of his death and says People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' German branch had previously complained that his mother and other bears were tormenting Knut. And a PETA rep told TMZ that polar bears don't belong in captivity.

Knut was a celebrity, who by all accounts seemed to love the limelight. After his debut at the popular zoo, he became its star attraction, raising revenue and spawning toys, DVDs and more. He was not diagnosed as being ill at the time, reports say. An investigation into the cause of his death is underway.
Eerily, his beloved keeper, Thomas Doerflein (shown above), also died at an early age. Doerflein died at 44 in 2008 in his apartment after he had reared the cub and slept by its side, but later was told no longer to play or wrestle with Knut, who was becoming an adult polar bear and considered too dangerous to interact with closely. Doerflein reportedly suffered a heart attack. Knut acted morose after his friend's death.

Other Reports 
BERLIN – Berlin's beloved polar bear Knut, an international star who as a cuddly, fluffy cub graced magazine covers, movies and merchandise, died Saturday. His death at the young age of four took zookeepers and animal experts by surprise.
The celebrity bear died suddenly in his compound at the Berlin Zoo on Saturday afternoon, bear keeper Heiner Kloes told The Associated Press. He waded into the water in his enclosure before having a short spasm and then dying in front of hundreds of zoo visitors.

While the life expectancy of polar bear in the wild is between 15 and 20 years, animals in captivity can live even longer because they are not exposed to hunger, thirst or infections. A postmortem will be conducted on Monday to try to pinpoint the cause of death, Kloes said.

"He certainly did not die of old age," Thomas Pietsch from the Vier Pfoten group for the prevention of cruelty to animals told German news agency DAPD.

His death was met by an immediate outpouring of sorrow. As the news of Knut's death spread through the city, more Knut fans showed up at the zoo, assembling in front of the bear compound to mourn his loss.

Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit called Knut's death "awful," telling the B.Z. daily, "we all held him so dear."

"He was the star of the Berlin zoos," he said.

Abandoned at birth on December 5, 2006, along with his twin brother, who only survived a couple of days, Knut first attracted attention when his main caregiver, Thomas Doerflein, camped out at the zoo to give the button-eyed cub his bottle every two hours. Doerflein cuddled and played with him at daily public appearances to the delight of thousands of people who came to watch.

Fan clubs sprung up across the globe, including in Japan, the United States and Germany. Fans followed his every move, including his weight battle — he had a weakness for croissants — or plans to move to a different zoo.

"Knutmania" led to a 2007 Vanity Fair cover with actor Leonardo DiCaprio shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz, a film and plush likenesses. Though the zoo has never released exact numbers, Knut merchandise including postcards, key chains, candy and stuffed Knuts have brought in hundreds of thousands of euros.

He was so adored, and profitable, Berlin's zoo paid some euro430,000 ($600,000) to the Neumuenster zoo to settle a financial dispute over his ownership. Neumuenster owns Knut's father and had insisted it was the legal owner of Knut, the elder bear's first offspring.

No longer a cub, Knut grew rapidly, weighing a hulking 440-pounds (200-kilograms) by age two, and trading in white fluff for yellowish fur. Doerflein, the zookeeper who raised him, died in 2008 of a heart attack, earning front page headlines in German newspapaper as "Knut's daddy."

Between 600 and 700 people were at his compound when Knut died, zoo officials said. One visitor said she watched Knut lying on the surface of the water motionless with only his back showing for ten minutes until zookeepers came and fenced off the compound.

"Everybody was asking, 'What's going on, why is Knut not moving?'" said Camilla Verde, a 30-year-old Italian who lives in Berlin.

"All the zoo keepers who put up the fences were so very sad. One of them said, 'He was our baby,'" she said.

Some said they feared Knut had died from all the stress that stardom brings.

"I suspect he died of a heart attack," said Elke Neumann, who had come to Knut's enclosure when she heard of his death. "And I hope the medical officials will be able to confirm that it was because of stress."

Last week I lost my best friend Sonia Girard

 Last friday I got a call I never wanted to get my good friend Sonia had been rushed to the ER and was what they thought to be brain dead. Sonia was a beautiful soul so loving and caring and over the last few months had been having difficulty breathing. Late friday night at 9:07 she was pronounced dead and my heart was broke. The last day I seen her she had come by to check on me and I spent the day showing her all my memorials I had been making for all of you. We talked about Heaven and what it would be like ,It is a day i will always cherish and the last thing I said to her was "I love you Sonia". We had become very close and for that I will always cherish our time spent together. My daughters loved her dearly and every time we we're all together we just couldn't stop laughing. I always looked forward to spending time with her because she was just so special to us. Sonia was 41 and she left behind 2 children and a husband. Please keep them in your prayers.

Forever in the arms of the Angels

In Loving Memory of Baby For Nelda "Rainbow Bridge Memorial Giveaway" (Winner 10)

In Memory Of Baby

This is my "Baby" who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on December 10, 2008. I grew up in Corpus Christi Texas. She belonged to a neighbor who was trying to get rid of her by beating her up. I couldn't believe the treatment of this beautiful angel, so I asked if I could have her. And, she was with me for the next 18 years. A very friendly, loyal and wonderful pet and companion. She loved my husband as well. She was a wonderful mother and is so missed each and every day. In this photo, she was watching out for my husband to come home from work where we now live in California.

My beautiful little boy "Oswald" that I lost tragically July 23rd, 2009 I love you and miss you darling. Wait for Mommy at the Rainbow Bridge. xox

I had Oswald almost 6 years, He was born August 5th, 2002 he was blind and a diabetic. I had to give him 3 shots a day. I moved here to the States in 2008 from Canada. I left every behind except the love of my life, my love, my little dog.

I feel my heart has been shattered, I miss him every day, I still cry for him. He was my constant companion and best friend. I will never forget him.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be 

worthy of such devotion.

In Loving Memory of Tucker for Gin Tucker "Rainbow Bridge Memorial Giveaway" (Winner 7)

In Memory of Tucker
this is what Gin had to say about her sweet cat.

 This is my sweet Tucker. He came to me 12 years ago and was the sweetest cat ever. He never hissed or spit..even when other cats hissed at him. He was a constant companion for my disabled mom when I wasn't home. Sadly he had a tumor on his liver and was losing weight. The day after my wedding I had to put him to rest. My new husband's last name is Tucker so imagine losing one very sweet special Tucker and gaining one all in 2 days.That was January 25-26 2010.
