Berlin Zoo Director: Knut Should Be Stuffed Because 'He Was Just A Polar Bear'

For those that hate zoos (and even those that don’t), prepare to get a little irked.

The Director of the Berlin Zoo earlier this week offered some great insight into how he perceives the animals under his charge. In a nutshell, they’re just dumb, emotionless things with legs that deserve to be exploited.

In response to protests by people pissed that Knut the Polar Bear is scheduled to be stuffed and put on display (arguably, to continue bringing in the dough), director Berhard Blaszkiewitz said the following:

“The problem is that people take their human feelings and put them into animals,” he said. “After Knut’s death there were all these overwhelming emotions. That’s OK for humans, but in my opinion it is not OK for animals. This is just a polar bear, a special polar bear, but a polar bear all the same.”

And there you have it. So for those reading that continue to visit zoos and assign any emotion whatsoever to cuddling animals or frustrated lions pacing back and forth in front of exhibit windows, just remember that in Blaszkiewitz’s eyes, you’re not only a dollar sign, but a f*cking crackpot too.
