    Poor lil guy. Knut the polar bear has died at the age of four.

    :(

    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."
