A German man climbed over a barrier at the Berlin Zoo to give Knut the polar bear a hug because he thought it was lonely, Bloomberg is reporting.

Zoo workers stopped the man before he, or the polar bear, could be harmed.


This is one of those “live and learn” cases. If he had hugged the bear, and lived, he would have learned something.
