TWO polar bears re playing in Vienna’s Schoenbrum zoo.

The Express says the “two twin cubs” (not three twin cubs), put on a “entrancing performance”. There is “wrestling”. There is “rolling around”.

This is part of the Teutonic polar bear breeding programme, a plan to have each German-Austrian town equipped with its own polar.

There is mention made of Knut, the foremost celebrity polar bear, the subject of a film deal chronicling his “early life”.

Knut is one.
