It seems that Knut, Berlin’s über-cute polar bear cub, is alive and well—and despite the opinion of some animal-rights activists that he should have been killed rather than humanized. Three-month-old Knut made his public debut at the Berlin Zoo last weekend to the adulation of large crowds of children and an international media feeding frenzy. The little fluffball seems to be a natural star and all the attention didn’t faze him a bit.
Good thing, because the Berlin Zoo is banking on a bonanza of visitors this summer to come see Knut in action. He will be out every day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
