Castrate Knut The Global Warming Polar Bear?

It’s been a long, rough road for Knut the Polar Bear.

Once the darling of the media industry and symbol of global warming, Knut has fallen fast from his days of hanging out with Leonardo DiCaprio on magazine covers to now, well, just hanging out. His cuddly/cute days behind him, Knut lives out life much like any other bear in captivity by eating and sleeping.

There has been new speculation, however, that Knut is being groomed to mate with fellow roommate Giovanna, on loan from Munich Zoo. The only problem is — and this is where PETA steps in — is that both Knut and Giovanna share a common grandfather. “They are cousins,” said Frank Albrecht, head of the German branch of PETA. “If they were allowed to breed, the offspring would be prone to genetic abnormalities and liable to illness.”

“A long term co-habitation between Giovanna and Knut is only feasible if Knut is castrated,” he added. Ouch.

For their part, the Berlin Zoo plans on sending Giovanna away in the fall and finding a more suitable mate for Knut; preferably one outside the family tree. For Knut’s sake, we hope they’re successful.
