Slideshow: Baby Polar Bear, Knut, is Worldwide Star

Knut is a three-month-old polar bear cub who has captured the hearts of many Germans -- and now, through the Internet, the world. The Berlin Zoo has thankfully ignored demands that the animal be allowed to die after being abandoned by its mother, Tosca. The cub was adopted by a zookeeper, who moved into the animal's enclosure to care for him around the clock.

Some animal rights campaigners think this will humanize the bear too much and want the zoo to stop saving young animals and one went so far as to suggest it would be better to kill the cub than have him reared by humans.

What do you think of this controversy? Tell us on our Blog about Knut.
