Berlin Zoo is cramming too many animals into limited space and isn't providing enough room for celebrity polar bear Knut, a Berlin politician has said. She attributes the recent deaths of an elephant and an ostrich to the shortage of space.

Being in a zoo is no where near being free out in the great wide open. They need to have bigger areas for them and not cram so many together. If I had my way, they wouldn't be in the zoo at all.

I don't believe in zoos and wish the animals could be sent to sanctuaries,. Thank you Simone.

Zoos = prisons.

Outrageous that zoos can do this, surely there must be a space allowance for animals dependant upon the size? There is certainly one for kennels why not zoos? Thanks Simone.

Noted! Knut is being bullied because the other bears dont have enough room and belong in the wild..
