Is this PETA? I'm getting so tired of those attention whores.

Man, animal rights activites must farking hate that polar bear. First they wanna kill him, now it's chopping his balls off.

Castrate him to avoid incestuous breeding? Well then, there is much work to be done in West Virgina.

When you've you banged your hot cousin, and you realized dude that's your cousin.

For a group that allegedly likes animals, they sure do want to farking murder that bear.
 
2010-03-03 11:38:12 AM
I'm pretty animals hardly have a problem with incest. And while not good genetically I don't think one pair of interbreeding cousins will ruin the ENTIRE genetic pot for these German polar bears. If that were true we'd all be extinct or borderline stupid by now given that cousin marriages were a lot more common back in the day.

With helpful pic of what a polar bears testicles might look like.

That's just knuts!

I'm for it. Rather, I'm for handing each individual activist a razor blade, locking him in the bear's cage with a backslap and a 'Have at it, boy.' Lather, rinse, repeat.

Of course we all know that the animal rights activists did not really want to kill the polar bear. They made that statement as satire, considering that this zoo previously had no problems with putting down other baby animals, such as a sloth bear cub.

Castrating him so that he can have a longer life with his mate. Hmmmmm...
Married guys?

Maybe it's different for polar bears, but I thought cousin-coupling wasn't terribly risky from a biological standpoint.
 
2010-03-03 11:49:54 AM
Of course, rather then deKnuting him, they could provide other female polar bears for him to Knut with...

Or am I a Knut?

austerity101: Maybe it's different for polar bears, but I thought cousin-coupling wasn't terribly risky from a biological standpoint.

It's not, especially in a 'healthy' genepool scenario. But the activists don't want to think or do any work, they just want to cut some balls off.

So they had the same grandfather. They didn't say grandparents so that means they had a different grand mothers. And completely different parents. Making them... what? 1/2 first cousins?

Instead of 8 unique genetic lines feeding into this pairing, there would be 7. In a true case of first cousins getting together, you would only have at most 6 unique genetic lines.

Its certainly a lot less than if they were second cousins, how close IS too close?
 
2010-03-03 11:56:38 AM
So... They're worried about polluting the gene pool with inbreeding and their genius answer to that is to castrate the male polar bear and thereby decrease the available genetic material to work with in that population.

Anybody got a pic of a polar bear facepalm?
 
2010-03-03 11:56:59 AM
Knut is just not that cute any more.

Kill him.

You know, they could just genetically test the pair and find out if they're too closely related. I used to work for an organization that used genetic testing to manage the genetic diversity of an endangered population. We'd test every member of the population in our captive breeding program, and mate the least related individuals to each other. If the genetic markers have already been developed (not unlikely in an population of vulnerable charismatic megafauna) it would likely not cost more than about $200 or so to test both, and much less if a program is already in operation somehwere.

Vulnerable Charismatic Megafauna would be an awesome band name.

So, if they were in the wild and ran into each other, they would know they are cousins and not mate? Srsly?

Bob Barker approves. We certainly don't want him running around, spawning strays.

FTA: "Knut fans need to know that only Knut's castration would allow a long life together with Giovanna," Albrecht said in a statement.

I've heard militant lesbians advocate the same thing. Knut needs to understand consensual cousin-sex is rape.

I have a better idea, let's spay and neuter all the PETA activists, that would do wonders for the human gene pool.

How can they be for animal rights and still interested in taking away animal rights? How about they just admit that they are in favor of cruelty too?

In the bizarro-world of AR activists, the solution for *EVERY* animal "problem" is to chop off the nuts. Your dog has worms? NEUTER HIM IMMEDIATELY!!!

I'd make some sort of snide comment, but last night my internet searching led to eunuch.org, and after 5 minutes of reading I screamed, hid in the shower for a few minutes and then cried myself to sleep.

I say we should just kill the PETA people. Anybody that could possibly see a benefit to castration is a deviant and should be destroyed.

/Outside of cats and dogs, of course

Maybe those PETA members aren't actually human, but something along the lines of zombies. Except instead of eating BRAAAAIIINNNSS, they crave NUUUUUTTTS instead. Ya think?

I've actually had weird thoughts along similar lines from time to time. :P (And before anyone asks, I'm not one of those anti-neutering freaks, I just find it rather odd how spay/neuter has pretty much become a bizarre fetish in North American culture, to the point where practises such as pediatric neuter (which has known and proven negative effects on animal health), have become acceptable and the norm).

A bear penis is called a "growler", except for polar bears, it's called a "mernoch".

Kriggerel: In the bizarro-world of AR activists, the solution for *EVERY* animal "problem" is to chop off the nuts. Your dog has worms? NEUTER HIM IMMEDIATELY!!!

No kidding. I took my dog to a new vet because my old one was pushy and told me what a horrible person I was for not giving my dog this shot and that shot and all this other crap that was not necessary, and while having possible benefits (or else I'd hope they wouldn't even offer them), I also discovered several of these vaccines can cause cancer in dogs. The new vet sees my dog for the first time and asks why she's not spayed. I respond that I haven't decided whether to breed her (she's a full breed, registered with CKC), and the vet tells me what a horrible person I am and that it's most certainly not a good idea to even consider breeding her because she's so small. Idiot vet doesn't realize she's a SMALL BREED?! Had two dogs, and both were on a "medical care plan" that I paid a monthly fee for with this vet...the other dog died overnight of unknown causes, and upon calling my vet I'm told that they don't care that my dog died, and I'll continue to pay them the monthly fee for the medical plan until it expires...for services not rendered. My point is that it's another bleeding heart AR moron who proves that they aren't about the animals, they're about the money...because the services they "recommend" are services that they offer...at a moderate price, of course.

...to be castrated to avert incest with his cousin.

This does not bode well for Mountaineer fans.

Here's a novel idea...

Have the exact same activists who are calling for Knut's nuts to be chopped off be sterilized as well!

Problem solved.

While Peta is a group of absolute retards, they are really not much more than a cult of idiotic college girls who are easy marks to give up daddy's money. This and the idiot boys who want to get in their pants. They are really more annoying than harmfull. This is in the US, your country may have different results from them. However, the real threat is the other AR group which is much more devious. The HSUS is a group who pretends to run shelters and leeches off of the humane society name. These people are out to ban ALL animal use AND they actually fund and pay to try to see this acomplished.

Peta = bad/stupidity
HSUS = true evil. (they want your bacon to be illegal)

This. Or we could just speed up the process and kill them. It would also reduce the number of Bipedal Carbon Units (another biatchin' name for a band) infesting Mother Gaia.
