Bear Knut monument unveiled at Berlin Zoo
BERLIN - The Associated Press
Photographers take images of a new bronze statue depicting bear ‘Knut.’Fans of the late polar bear Knut packed the area around the Berlin Zoo enclosure where he died unexpectedly last year at the age of four for the dedication of a new monument to him.
Zoo director Bernhard Blaszkiewitz said Oct 24, he hopes the bronze statue called “Knut the dreamer” will attract a lot of children like other such monuments to animals in the park.
Knut fan Jutta Geissler says the artist did a great job capturing the polar bear’s personality and that “all the emotions for Knut are back again.”
