He’s so cute. One day he will make one fine rug

Should this baby bear be killed? – Metro.co.uk:Animal rights activists are calling for a baby polar bear raised by humans to be killed.
The abandoned polar bear cub named Knut looks cute, cuddly and has become a front-page media darling, but now the activists insist he would have been better off dead than raised by humans.

“Feeding by hand is not species-appropriate but a gross violation of animal protection laws,” animal rights activist Frank Albrecht was quoted as saying by the mass-circulation Bild daily, which has featured regular photo spreads tracking fuzzy Knut’s frolicking.
“The zoo must kill the bear,” he added.

By the way, I was being sarcastic in the caption of the picture.

    You’re so right. Every day, I open the newspaper to read of yet another tragic attack in a state park – by a fucking polar bear.

    Y’know, maybe you and r jones there need to get together and open a think tank for idiots.

    #17 – In case you’re confused, when I go in all these weak political threads on here and use the word “hack”, I’m refering to people like you who can’t back up their bullshit.

    You and those like you are the reason this place isn’t half as good as it could be.

    What am I a shill for? How am I a reactionary? I consistently put forward a point of view that simply states that most political discussions are meaningless (like this one), as one side has an absolute that cannot be refuted. For better or worse, the last things I am are a shill or a reactionary.

    I did in fact back up my bullshit, which you never do, but since john is using Flintstones Grade software, it seems that the two paragraphs I wrote are gone.

    You don’t “use” the word hack as much as abuse it. Nor do you typically say anything useful at all. You storm into a thread, call someone a hack, declare the topic useless, and bail without any substance at all.

    You are a shill for the right wing nutjob platform. And you never listen, because if you did, you’d know that there is no fucking way I am on the side of the anti-polar bear guy.

    You don’t know anything about me. You just think I’m a liberal and since you don’t know what a liberal is, choosing instead to cling to a dumb-ass Faux News/Neocon fantasy definition of what a liberal is, you make false assumptions about me… and I don’t care.

    Now, my point was that the headline to this article was unfair as it refered to the plural activists when it is in fact about one bonehead who wants to kill a polar bear. Only when I wrote it before, it was very funny and including several sharb jabs at various players in the whole non-story.

    James, get off your pedastal. You are not smarter than me, and you aren’t smarter than anyone else around here.

    #33 – You’re pretty defensive for someone who’s so sure of himself. Probably means you’re not that sure of yourself, must less intelligent enough to navigate the word processing power of this blog.

    (Notice how in two sentences I took care of your entire rant. That’s intelligence, son.)

  4. OhForTheLoveOf says:

    #35… I’m not at all sure what you think is rant like or defens… no wait… nothing is defensive, is it… See, you are so good at empty smug bullshit and a condescending attitude, that for a brief glimmering moment I thought you were serious.

    Well, we all know you a troll, and I have lot’s a troll food. But honestly, while I know you aren’t smarter than me, I doubt you are dumber than me. It would be nice if you could stop being a pompous jackass and actually engage in a dialog once in a while.

    And remember… never use one word when ten will do.

    #31 I know I’m better than you and your wife agrees.

    #31 and #32…..Gotti, you made my day with those 2 posts. I was just sitting here thinking about all the death and destruction caused by roving bands of polar bears in our parks. 🙂

    To be honest, Herr Albrecht was attempting to make a point that I tend to agree with. Unfortunatly, he chose the wrong target. As an Animal advocate, I don’t agree with the killing of any animal not specifically raised for food(I can hear the screaming now, but we all, humans, animals and others, have the right to provide food for ourselves to ensure our survival, and I believe man is primarily a carnivore)……..but I also understand the point the nice Doctor was trying to make. Taking an animal from the wild and allowing it to become **humanized** almost certainly means the animals death when re-released to the wild.(it’s why groups who treat injured or abandoned animals avoid contact with the animals as much as possible)……the Doctors mistake here is that this is a Zoo born animal that will never be released to the wild. While the keeper in this case may have gone over board and could be raising a problem bear, under normal circumstances, there shouldn’t be a problem.

    Put nazi frank in the pen with Knut’s mother do discuss the situation! then have him try the lethal injection first to make sure it’s painless!!!!

  9. jb says:

    Frank Albrecht should be the one thats killed. So much for being an animal rights activist. YOU SICK BASTARD. As an animal rights activist you should be protecting the life of that innocent creature regardless of the means used to keep him alive.

  10. Rajene says:

    Don’t kill the animals. this country so many bastard without father living that kind human have killed.

  11. Jamie says:

    WTF?!?! Why would they want to kill the polar bear if they are “All about saving the animals” I love animals and am against animal cruelty. Peta sounds like hypocrites to me! You should never have to kill a helpless animal for no reason!!

  12. These people who want to kill the baby polar bear are assholes, and they discourage the entire animal rights movement. Animal rights isn’t about killing animals who are in nature, animal rights is about protecting, liberating animals from torturous situations, and not eating or using animals for entertainment or animal testing. I am a vegan animal rights supporter, and when I see this, it makes ME feel sick that someone, who CLAIMS TO BE AN ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST, would want to have a little tiny polar bear slain. Now that’s not animal rights. Animal rights is compassion for animals, not slaying all animals that aren’t in nature. I think this website is made up of faggot motherfuckers, dvorak, because the caption below the Knut picture says “One day he’ll make a fine rug.” Fuck you all!

  13. Qiana says:

    I think this is ridiculous… if you say we should kill the bear because it was raised by humans, then why wouldn’t we kill all the animals that have been kept and raised in captivity at the zoos and wild life refuges? Haven’t they been raised by humans too?

  14. Nilla Wafer says:

    WOW ok so this is the lamest thing i have ever heard! i agree with that one person… let humans continue to raise it and let us kill it later due to it attacking a caretaker.. at least it got a good 5-10 years in. guess im just stuck on the whole killing a baby thing. for some reason killing an adult bear sounds not as bad… just me?? (=
