Sad Panda News

Bao Bao the Panda has died in Berlin Zoo. It is believed that he was the world's oldest male Panda when he died, being 32 years old. He was the last of his generation of Pandas who were given by China as goodwill presents to Western countries. He arrived in Berlin in 1980 and apart from a sojourn in London stayed there for the rest of his life.

The picture is from the website of Pambassador Jeroen Jacobs, who has written a memoir of his many visits to see Bao Bao. It includes some pictures of a very tired Bao Bao from only a few days before his death.
