BERLIN – A Berlin zoo official says world-famous polar bear Knut has died.
Bear keeper Heiner Kloes said that four-year-old Knut died Saturday afternoon while alone in his compound. He says the cause is not yet clear.
Kloes says a post mortem will be conducted on Monday to try to pinpoint his cause of death.
Knut rose to stardom when he was hand-raised by zoo keepers after his mother rejected him at birth.
"He was by himself in his compound, he was in the water, and then he was dead," said Kloes. "He was not sick, we don't know why he died."
