Troubled Former Cute Baby Ice Bear Knut Drops Dead
It's amazing he lasted this long. He was dead inside years ago.
Veterinary experts performed a necropsy Monday on Berlin zoo's celebrity polar bear Knut to try to determine why he died suddenly over the weekend.
The four-year-old polar bear died Saturday afternoon in front of visitors, turning around several times and then dropping to the ground, and falling into the water in his enclosure.
Polar bears usually live 15 to 20 years in the wild, and even longer in captivity, and the zoo is hoping the investigation may help clarify what happened.
Global warming, obviously (heroin and syphilis).
And there goes yet another living thing Dick Cheney somehow outlived. [AP]
