As predicted, Knut the Polar Bear is sinking further into depravity:

Germany’s celebrity polar bear Knut has triggered a new controversy by fishing out 10 live carp from his moat and killing them in front of visitors.

Knut has a moat.

Critics say Berlin Zoo should not have put live fish inside Knut’s enclosure. But German media report that the carp were put there to eat up algae.

Who knew polar bears like fish?

The Frankfurter Allgemeine news website reports that Knut “senselessly murdered the carp”, fishing them out, playing with them and then leaving the remains.

Last week I dropped a potato and Megan ate it. She clearly has no respect for other people’s property, and it’s a slippery slope. I once saw a dog chasing a squirrel.
