Knut The Polar Bear To Leave The Berlin Zoo
It turns out the Berlin zoo can’t afford a larger enclosure for growing bear.
Despite his celebrity status, Berlin Zoo says he must go by 2010 as it will cost at least £7m to pay for bigger enclosures for him and to find him a future mate.
‘We cannot afford it in such times of economic strain,’ said a spokesman for Berlin Zoo.
Zoologists are concerned for his mental welfare and fear that because he only knows contact with humans he has developed psychopathic tendencies and is not developed enough to respond properly to a mate’s advances.
Uh, what did they expect? This is a polar bear we’re talking about. It’s not like he would have grown up to become like a Labrador.
