The Berlin Zoo received a fax threatening to end the life of its superstar polar bear baby Knut, which police dismissed Thursday as a hoax and zoo officials insisted would not disrupt daily viewing of the cub. The fax, which the zoo received on Wednesday read, "Knut is dead. Thursday noon." Zoo officials immediately alerted police who inspected the enclosure where Knut, who was rejected by his mother at birth and was raised by zookeepers, makes daily appearances before packed crowds.
