Nobody Likes Obese German Bear

Knut, the German polar bear who was beloved as a fluffy cub, is all grown up. And fat. And ignored, reports Der Spiegel.
Knut, the world's most famous polar bear, is off the scales after eating too many snacks and has been put on a diet. The Berlin Zoo said Knut's handlers have been told to stop feeding him extra rations of croissant, fish and meat.

Former polar bear superstar Knut, whose celebrity has waned since he stopped being a cute cub, has been put on a diet because he is getting too fat, the Berlin Zoo announced on Tuesday.
Which reminds me -- didn't DC have a cute little bear of its own? I wonder if he's still around, or if he and his posse skipped town.
