Starving diet imposed on KnutWednesday, August 1, 2007 at 4:09 | Posted in Germany | Leave a comment
I wrote yesterday about Germans and their relationship with bears. I thereby mentioned Knut the polar bear who used to be an outright media star as a baby. It now turns out that the eight month old polar bear has grown to be fat, according to zoo vets and faces a strict diet.
“Knut has become noticeably round,” zoo vet Andreas Ochs said. “So we shall be feeding him restrictively.”
That means no more croissants and extra portions of fish and meat for the shaggy youngster, who turns eight months on August 5.
Knut himself has not so far commented the strict food regime in his blog.
Edit: Knut’s response has appeared in the blog. He says he is not at all fat and keeps excercising.
