    Save Poor 'Knut' The Polar Bear

    This story has sickened me.

    This Polar Bear has made world news before when he had to be hand reared.

    Now, he has made his zoo an estimated £8.5 million in tourist prices, they want to dump him because he costs too much.

    Just another animal 'disposable item' when it suits.

    Saw it on the news and it broke my heart.Mind you more or less the same happened to Michael Jacksons Chimp.....Bubbles wasn't it.....same old story isn't it, all lovely when they are small and cuddly but gawd help them when they get bigger.The charm ceases to be.

    Then there was the killer whale in the 'free Willy' film, mind you, i queued for hours when that was advertised at my cinema and it wasn't the willy i was thinking of

    Poor Knut. However, i do feel that he will get a new zoo. I'm just hoping it's the one a few miles from me.

    Do you remember 'Elsa' the Lion from the 'Born Free' film?
    She was housed in Paignton zoo and we used to go to see her as kids when we holidayed in Devon. So sad.

    Yes I do remember her....Oscar I could be here for hours saying what I feel about the way some animals are handled but TBH I end up upsetting myself as theres sweet FA I can do about it and all this will still go on when Im long buried Im afraid.All my life animals have played a big part even to the point of not going for a holiday for over 30 years.....first one was last year and that was just for a few days as someone very close to me looked after my little uns.Anyway on that I will bid you a Good Night and God Bless

    don't even get me started!

    they couldn't afford a mate for him....now he is suffering

    now he is no longer a nice bear for folks to see at the zoo becasue he is cranky without a mate

    and now they cant afford to feed him?

    ODIE- I found it. And, I must say I bear more than a little resemblance.
    Thank you.

    The reason i'm so annoyed is that this zoo made mega bucks out of him, now they can't afford to keep him.
    I think there would be world wide outcry if they just dumped him so i'm hoping a zoo near me will take him. I'd love to see him close up.
