Little Knut Gets Death Threat … I Told You So

Posted by Casey on April 19, 2007

When little Knut turned up sick, and there was no diagnosis, I told you that I smelled fowl play. I hypothesized that Knut’s illness was an attempt on his life, and I may have been proven right.


Germany’s celebrity polar bear cub Knut has received an anonymous death threat, causing alarm at Berlin Zoo on Thursday and prompting heightened security.

Top-selling Bild newspaper said the zoo had received a hand-written fax from a suspected animal hater with the words: “Knut is dead! Thursday midday.”

But that deadline came and went safely for media star Knut, who has been on newspaper front pages around Germany and the world for weeks. “He is safe and in good spirits,” said zoo official Ragnar Kuehne after the time had passed.

What does Reuters mean the deadline came and went safely? Knut has been sick! Previously, I had done a story about how Reuters covered for the activist who originally threatened the life of Knut. This is starting to look more and more like a bit of a conspiracy to cover up the real threat to Knut’s life.

Think about this for a second.

  • Knut is threatened by animal rights activists.
  • Reuters covers for said activists.
  • Knut receives a death threat.
  • Knut gets sick suspiciously with no diagnosis.
  • Reuters doesn’t mention the illness in covering the death threat.

This whole thing is a little weird.
