NUREMBERG, Germany (AP) -- The Nuremberg zoo says one of a pair of twin polar bear cubs has died -- and that it is possible its mother ate it.

The twin bears were born three weeks ago to the mother of the zoo's celebrity polar bear -- Flocke.

Flocke had been rejected by her mother,Vera, and was hand-raised by zookeepers.

Vera did not reject the two new cubs born in late November, but the zoo says that the cub died Monday. The cub had not yet been named.

The bear can no longer be seen on a video monitoring the animals' enclosure. The zoo said Wednesday it is possible Vera ate it.

The zoo says cubs typically have about a 50 percent chance of survival. The other cub remains in good health

She should be imprisoned for that! Polar bears are a protected species!
