How on earth did I miss this story: “Zookeeper who reared Knut found dead.”
It’s the saddest story.
THE zookeeper who hand-reared Knut the polar bear at Berlin Zoo has been found dead at his home.
Thomas Doerflein, 44, was found dead on Monday. Authorities have yet to rule on the cause of death, but a police spokesman said there was no reason to suspect suicide or foul play.
Berlin Zoo confirmed Mr Doerflein was still employed but would not comment on reports that t he had been suffering from a serious illness.
Even here, in the realm of Knut’s fame, happiness cannot be found.
