    Polar bear Knut senselessly murders ten carp in front of zoo visitors - Gadling

    Polar bear Knut senselessly murders ten carp in front of zoo visitorsby Aaron Hotfelder Apr 9th 2008 @ 9:20AM

    Knut, the once-cute celebrity polar bear turned vicious killer, is at the center of a controversy over his brutal slaughter of ten carp at the Berlin Zoo. The massive polar bear, who has lived at the zoo since birth, apparently fished the carp out of the moat surrounding him and ripped them to shreds in front of several disgusted zoo patrons.

    One of Germany's top newspapers, Bild, ran the headline "Knut Embroiled in Carp Scandal," and featured an article which quoted animal rights groups who criticized zoo officials for placing live animals within Knut's reach.

    It seems that Knut, the psychopathic killer that he is, eventually chowed down on the fish, but according to the BBC, "There is speculation that hand-reared Knut killed the carp just for fun." One German newspaper reported that Knut "senselessly murdered the carp" before leaving their remains.

    I think Tyler Cowen says it best: "Umm... HE'S A POLAR BEAR!"


    These people have seen way too many cartoons.
    "If you can't place your shots on a non-moving piece of paper, how much more difficult will it be when that piece of paper becomes a 3-time felon whose sole purpose is to avoid going back to prison no matter what happens and no matter who gets in the way?"

    These are the same type of idiots that think the high fence and moat are to protect the cute cuddly animals from us.

    In reading the Concealed Handgun Manual (awesome BTW), I think there was a statement (and I paraphrase) that killing in nature is rarely 'humane', it is always violent. The discussion was over the humane-ness of hunting, vs. the animal dying or being killed by predators.

    Umm, I suspect bears also eat conservatives. However, they eat fewer conservatives because they tend to be armed and able to defend themselves.
