Knut in September 2008

5.9.2020 – Photos by Gudrun, Collage by Dumba

We all remember how Knut was walking and occasionally standing on his hind legs waiting for a keeper who would bring him food – preferably a big salmon.

I remember a funny episode from a feeding with Frau Weckert. She had some grapes and small fish but also a big salmon. She threw the ‘small stuff’ first to Knut and he looked quite satisfied. However, soon he caught sight of the salmon and growled louder than I ever heard before. 🙂 Of course, the lady keeper had to obey Knut’s order! 🙂

Knut always used this stone as his dinner table.

So many years have passed since you left us but we still miss you so deeply. You will never be forgotten!

  1. Dear Mervi, thanks a lot for another walk down memory-lane. It is a long time ago, but I remember it, as was it yesterday.
    Thanks Gudrun for the wonderful pictures.
    Weekendgreetings from Copenhagen

  2. Liebe Mervi,

    welch ein GlĂĽck, das “damals” die Zoo-und Tierfreunde ihren Lieblingen noch besondere Leckerbissen mitbringen durften – was mittlerweile sogar verboten ist – , sonst hätte es solch zauberhaften Mahlzeiten mit Knut und seinem Lachs nie gegeben.
    Oh ja, er war ein Bär mit sehr guten Tischmanieren und ein genussvoller Esser.
    Nur bei Giovanna hatte er dabei manchmal das Nachsehen….

    Vielen Dank fĂĽr diese schöne Erinnerung zum heutigen Tag und ja doch – er bleibt unvergessen!

  3. Dear Mervi and Gudrun
    Feeding times with Knut were always special and it is as if it were yesterday. He knew what foods he liked. Thank you for these memories.

  4. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the remembrance of the good old days when Knut was still alive and well – and visitors were allowed to bring treats for their favourite animals… So much has changed since then and not necessarily for the better!

    Every friend of Knut has his own memories with regard to the feeding scenes. For my part I will never forget his skilfulness to catch single grapes with his mouth from the air.
    You are so right: he and the wonderful time we had with him will never be forgotten!

    Liebe Gudrun!
    Danke für Deine wunderschönen Fotos, die ihn so lebendig erscheinen lassen und viele Erinnerungen wachrufen.

    Viele GrĂĽĂźe
    Hugs
