    Knut, Berlin's beloved polar bear, dies in his compound



    BERLIN — Berlin's beloved polar bear Knut, who rose to stardom when he was hand-raised by zoo keepers after being rejected by his mother rejected at birth, died on Saturday, a zoo official said.
    The world-famous bear died alone in his compound, bear keeper Heiner Kloes told The Associated Press.
    "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."

    This is sad and everyone loves a cute little bear, but is it worthy of breaking news with all the real news out there?

    Considering the level of hype at the "knutmania"... the mods cna move it elsewhere if they see fit. It was "breaking news" on the web for a bit.

    It is odd to see a story like this given the other stories in the news... but I am sure his caretakers will miss him.

    You're supposed to add your own input when you create a Breaking News thread. I barely consider this news at all.

    If he had died in Texas, he would have become Bar-B-cue.

    Well at least I know...

    I added the picture, because a picture says a thousand words, I couldn't think of anything more appropriate. But I guess a picture "isn't your own input" and the triangle was too tempting.
