This is too ghoulishly exploitative for my taste. Let us remember adorable Knut as he was in life.

Knut the Polar Bear Becomes Museum Display

Adorable in life, still attracting admirers in death: Knut the polar bear’s hide has been mounted on a polyurethane body and is going on display in a Berlin museum.

The museum dismissed criticism of the decision to display Knut, saying it gives everyone an opportunity to see him.

He warmed our hearts with his life and broke our hearts with his death. Rest in peace dear little Knut.

    Wonder how the museum is doing financially including number of visitors. This may be similar to a website that posts salacious articles to get traffic. Decreasing revenue throws too many principled positions out the window.

    Wrong on so many levels; I don’t know where to start.

    Oh oh… I was hoping you would not see this, Tammy. I know how much you loved little Knut 🙁

    The whole thing is obscene and disgusting.

    Sorry, it’s only a pelt. Knut can’t be hurt by it.

    Knut still lives! As long people still hold him in their hearts and minds, he still lives.
