Live carp put in Polar bears pool - shocked people see him eat them all

What you get when you put carp fish in a polar bears pond to eat the weed? Yes a free meal for the polar bear.

Berlin Zoo's Knut has made headlines by eating 10 carp which were placed in his moat to clean it of algae. Animal welfare campaigners are aghast at what one newspaper is calling a "carp scandal". But Knut has proven that even hand-reared polar bears are good predators.

German celebrity polar bear Knut has swiped 10 fish out of the moat around his enclosure at Berlin Zoo and wolfed them down in an impressive display of his predatory skills.

Berlin Zoo had put the carp into his moat to help keep the water clean by eating algae. But the 140-kilo (309-pound) bear shocked onlookers by catching the chubby fish and playing with his live prey until they stopped flapping. Then he gobbled them up.

He ate them all in just a day and a half. Whatever people may say, he's a good hunter, and it's all part of being a polar bear. This shows he's totally fit. We won't be placing any more fish in his moat, though.
the zoo's bear expert Heiner Klös told SPIEGEL ONLINE.

Germany's top-selling daily Bild reported that onlookers were disgusted by the spectacle. The newspaper ran the headline "Knut Embroiled in Carp Scandal" and quoted animal welfare campaigners as criticizing the zoo for letting Knut eat live vertebrates in breach of German animal protection regulations.

LOL!!!

That is so funny how these people are all aghast over the bear eating fish.

Imagine; a bear eating fish.

Who would have seen that coming?

I love this part,, LOL
The Frankfurter Allgemeine news website reports that Knut "senselessly murdered the carp", fishing them out, playing with them and then leaving the remains.

These are the types of people who wouldn't be able to milk a cow, kill a chicken, skin a buck or put a worm on a hook.
