Poor little guy wasn't all that old, either.

I know. Mrs. THI thinks he died of a broken heart, because he lost his trainer friend a couple years ago.

NO! Say it isn't so!

Yeah, I'm afraid so. :( They don't know yet what caused it.

"Knut, who shot to fame as a highly photogenic, snow-white cub in 2007, was aged just four years and three months, well below the average life expectancy for polar bears of around 35."

Uh, yes, master/mistress of understatement, that is "well below."

I know. :(

Do the life expectancies differ between bears in captivity and those in the wild? I wonder. Although the Wiki article for Binky said he lived for 20 years. (I loved that photo of him with the woman's shoe.)

Crap. How sad, both on it's own merit and because is makes me miss Mollie.

I was just gonna say that. Knut always made me think of Mollie. Maybe they're frolicking in a parallel universe together somewhere.

Yeah, Knut & Mollie are inseparable in my mind. I think Stark is right, they are frolicking (and snorfling) in a parallel NOLA.
