Zoos in a spat

A GERMAN court has told the Berlin and Neumuenster zoos to settle a price dispute over Knut, the polar bear who took the world spotlight as a fuzzy white fluffball.

The Berlin Zoo offered 350,000 euros (US$476,420) for the now grown 2-year-old. Neumuenster rejected that, insisting it wanted 700,000 euros for Knut, the son of its polar bear, Lars. The court ordered the two sides to agree by July 13. Neumuenster is seeking to force Berlin to say how much it has made in royalties from Knut, whose image has been reproduced in posters, books, a movie and stuffed toys.
