Baby pandas

Currently doing the rounds on Facebook is a short video of baby pandas going down a slide with a Chinese keeper.

Where are the parents of these babies, I asked myself, knowing that it is notoriously difficult to get pandas to breed?

Well, the answer is that these babies are taken from their mothers at a few weeks old, leaving them both traumatised. In the wild pandas live with their mothers until they are around two years old. These poor captive babies are raised by humans for their sperm and eggs, then released into the wild, where they have no chance of survival, dying slowly of starvation. The Giant Panda is a gentle, intelligent creature. Please raise awareness of this heartless practice. Thanks.

Please let everyone know these facts when you get this video, and don’t tick “like”.
