Klondike, 18-year-old polar bear, dies at SeaWorld

Klondike and Snow -polar bears at Sea World ORG XMIT: HO (SEA WORLD OF FLORIDA / February 21, 1996)

After living most of his life at SeaWorld Orlando, Klondike, an 18-year-old polar bear, has died.

Klondike and his sister, Snow, were neglected by their mother at birth at the Denver Zoo in 1994. Zoo staff kept the cubs alive, but after a year the growing bears needed more space and were sent to SeaWorld.

Snow died last year. Klondike was found dead early Friday morning.

SeaWorld staff said the polar bear ate slowly Thursday night, which is unusual for him, but still his death was unexpected because he had no existing medical

issues. Staffer believe he died in his sleep.

According to Polar Bears International, a polar bear conservation group, the animals live an average of 15 to 18 years in the wild and can live into their 30s in captivity.

"Klondike was part of our animal family," said Mike Boos, SeaWorld Orlando's vice president of zoological operations. "We have team members who have known Klondike since he arrived in 1995. They're sad and feeling the loss of this amazing animal."
