The Johannesburg Zoo euthanized the 28 year old wang who was suffering from chronic arthritis and liver failure.
In an attempt to help him minimize the pain of his heartbreak and in the hope he could eat and improve his health, he was given special treats and showered with toys.
On Valentine's Day 2014, Wang was given a box filled with fruit and meat, and highlighted with love hearts and a note that said, "We Love You Wang!"
Polar bear reproduction is stimulated by cold weather, the bears Wang and GeeBee did not breed because they where raised in warm captivity since they where cubs.
According to the zoo there are no plans to replace the animals.
