It's a good thing these idiots weren't around when Klondike & Snow were being raised here in Denver. Same story - their mother, who was a first time mother, abandoned them. Luckily, they were found within hours of their birth, and were soon the STARS of Denver!
Here's a link to a book about them, which has the only pics of them as babies that I could find: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1570...58#reader-link
And here's a little blurb and pics of them now at Sea World Florida: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1570...58#reader-link
I was lucky enough to be able to see them in person when they were still pretty little. They weren't even walking yet - just crawling.
OMG, they were the cutest little things EVER!
And man were they LOUD!
These AR freaks are just that - freaks. There is no reason in the world that Knut shouldn't have been saved and allowed to live a happy life.
