Knut the polar bear: Ugly truth revealed

Is that dirt on his fur, or something more foul?

Behind closed doors, after the crowds have gone home and the paparazzi's cameras have stopped flashing and whirring, an ugly scene plays out at the Berlin zoo. Knut, the pathologically cute polar bear cub, shits all over the place and bites the hand of his handler when he tries to tidy up.
[Knut's keeper Thomas] Dörflein said in a newspaper interview that he has often cursed the world-famous ball of fur. "I could throw him against the wall when everything comes together and he's shat all over his cage at three o'clock in the morning," he told the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper.

"When he's shat on everything and then bites me because he's unsettled, it's enough to blow a fuse sometimes. But what can I do. He's a little baby and wants attention."
How adorable.
