Two polar bear cubs in Brno zoo die after birth

Two polar bear cubs that were born in the Brno zoo on Tuesday died soon after birth, a spokeswoman for the zoo said. According to curators, the two cubs died on Wednesday morning and their mother Cora ate them. However, the zoo still hopes the 13-year-old Cora will give birth to more offspring in the future; in 2007, she gave birth to the twins, Tom and Bill who became a huge attraction for visitors.
