Polar Bear Faces Extinction, Homelessness and the Results of a Makeover Gone Horribly Wrong

The Berlin Zoo has never been my favorite. It was for a long time in the 70s and 80s, before reunification, much more useful as a place to pick up desperate, heroin addicted young prostitutes than a place to learn about natural history. Things seemed to be looking up for it a year or two ago when the brittle boned cub, Knut, was born, abandoned, survived and drew huge, paying crowds to the aging, but not gracefully, zoo. That was then, this is now. Not good.
