"We want this baby polar bear dead"

You just can't make this stuff up...

An animal "rights" group in Germany is calling for the DEATH of a baby polar bear that was rejected by his mother. What horrible sin did said baby bear commit to warent the death sentence? He was raised by HUMANS!!!! (I kid you not...)

Here is an excerpt from the Daily Mail:

Tiny, fluffy and adorable, Knut the baby polar bear became an animal superstar after he was abandoned by his mother.

He rapidly became the symbol of Berlin Zoo, whose staff bottle-fed him and handed out cuddles in between

At three months old, however, the playful 19lb bundle of fur is at the centre of an impassioned debate over whether he should live or die.

Animal rights activists argue that he should be given a lethal injection rather than brought up suffering the humiliation of being treated as a domestic pet.
