Visitors to the Berlin zoo were shocked last week when Knut, the adorable polar bear who was born in captivity just one year ago, fished 10 carp out his moat and proceeded to eat them in a decidedly-messy polar bear manner. Well, as a fellow carnivore that also happens to love fish, I have news for those humans who were so horrified… this is what polar bears do! Sure it’s a rough break for the fish, but real animals are not Disney characters like the Three Little Pigs who sit at tables and eat with knives and forks. And hey, if the truth be told, I’ve personally sent more than one mouse to the Rainbow Bridge (and, fellow cat, I’m pretty sure you have, too). So let’s leave poor Knut alone and let him be the cute, albeit fish-catching polar bear that he is.
