Initial Findings In Knut's Necropsy

WARNING: The video below is very difficult to watch. It is a video of Knut's final moments.

While it will take several days for the final results, preliminary findings from a necropsy performed Monday by an institute in the German capital showed "significant changes to the brain, which can be viewed as a reason for the polar bear's sudden death," according to a statment released by the Berlin Zoo.

More tests have been planned including bacteriological and histological, or tissue, examinations.
