Dear friends! The days are getting more and more chilly but don't you worry! Our Knuipe is well prepared to welcome even the coldest days. There's always fresh Herkules and the samovar is hot all day long! We have also lots of yammy snacks to go with the drinks Uncle Sergej is creating for us!

Hello all,

I can not say, how triste I am now. Rest in Peace, dearest Vilma.

I want to have a Schnaps from uncle Sergej, please.

Hard news, hope that was not made by humans... :(

Greetings Knutilda

Dear Vilma,

We raise our glasses in sorrow, but also in celebration of your beauty and grace. Tears are in our eyes.

Vilma gone? Oh no, this is so very sad -- a tragedy. Vilma was a great mother. It is a relief that Vienna seems to be okay.
Group hug too..........

Oh my God, what sad news is this!!! And she was only 14 years old. I cannot believe it.
The keepers in Rostock must be very unhappy and lost now. Of their three bears, they were sure that there was only one coming back with certainty as Fiete is moving to Hungary and Vienna is already very old. And now, they have lost her. I cross my fingers for Vienna.

I cannot believe it . . .

Heute am spaeten Vormittag beobachteten die Tierpfleger eine deutliche Verhaltensaenderung bei der 14-jaehrigen Eisbaerin.

Sie schien lethargisch und hatte Schwierigkeiten sich zu bewegen.
Der Tierarzt des Zoos wurde gerufen und beobachtete sie,
waehrend eine Untersuchung vorbereitet wurde.

Der Zustand verschlechterte sich aber rapide und sie starb kurz nach Mittag.
Es wird nun eine Autopsie gemacht, um den Grund fuer ihren ploetzlichen Tod zu finden.

Vilma war am 20. Oktober gut in Aalborg angekommen. Den Transport von Rostock nach Aalborg hatte sie gut ueberstanden. Sie traf Lars wieder, der seit April 2015 in Aalborg lebt.
Die beiden Eisbaeren hatten zweimal zusammen Nachwuchs, einmal im Januar 2012 (Anori in Wuppertal) und im Dezember 2014 (Fiete in Rostock). Das Wiedersehen verlief harmonisch, nichts deutete auf Komplikationen hin, wie die Pfleger in Aalborg versicherten.

Die Mitarbeiter des Zoos Aalborg sind geschockt. Für sie ist das bisher unfassbar und man wartet auf die Ergebnisse der Autopsie.

Udo Nagel, Direktor des Zoo Rostock sagt: "Wir haben Vertrauen in unsere Kollegen in Daenemark. Wir wissen, dass sie alles in ihrer Macht Stehende getan haben, damit es Vilma gut geht - wie unsere Tierpfleger hier auch. Auch deshalb ist unsere Bestuerzung so gross.

From Zoo Rostock's FB site: 'Unsere liebe Vienna ist gut im Zoo La Palmyre in Frankreich angekommen und hat den Transport gut überstanden.'

At least some good news today .....

Gisela's last photos of Vilma in Rostock are also the last photos of Vilma in Knuti's Weekly. With a Heavy heart I had to change the title of the article.

OH, NO! What very sad news! I don't understand ...... she was still a young polar bear and seemed to be doing so fine. The keepers in both Rostock and Aalborg must be devastated. At the moment I have no more words .....
