Knut’s death in­ves­ti­gated

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

VETS have be­gun a ne­cropsy on Ber­lin Zoo’s su­per­star po­lar bear Knut af­ter his un­timely and un­ex­plained death aged just four. How­ever, it re­mained un­clear when the re­sults from the ex­am­i­na­tion of Knut, who was found life­less in the pool in his en­clo­sure on Satur­day, would be pub­lished. Knut first shot to fame as a cub af­ter be­ing aban­doned by his mother and reared by hand. His first pub­lic ap­pear­ance in 2007 drew around 100 TV cam­era crews from around the world. Dev­as­tated fans left roses, tulips and mes­sages of love.
