Beloved Knut the polar bear goes on display

Associated Press
Late polar bear Knut is on display at the  Natural History Museum  in Berlin, Friday, Feb. 15, 2013. Adorable in life, still attracting admirers in death: Knut the polar bear's hide has been mounted on a polyurethane body and is going on display in a Berlin museum.  The Natural History Museum on Friday unveiled the statue prepared by taxidermists featuring the famous Berlin Zoo bear's fur and claws, with the synthetic body and glass eyes. Knut was hand-raised after his mother rejected him. He rose to stardom in 2007 as a cuddly cub, appearing on magazine covers, in a film and on mountains of merchandise. He died in 2011 after suffering from encephalitis.   (AP Photo/Markus Schreiber)
